Ferdinand Bac used copies of classical sculptures from the collection of the Louvre in Paris (Les plâtres du Louvre) to decorate his garden and most of these have been lost to weather or damage or theft over time. Two of these, the charioteer of Delphi and the Nympheas of Jean Goujon, have been restored to show how they were.
However, the restoration preferred to commission new sculptures where possible and most new sculptures are by the Czech sculptor Yvan Theimer, who works in Paris and Pietrasanta. They notably represent a boy with a butterfly, an Egyptian cat, acrobats balancing on a viper’s nest, Orpheus and his lyre, Ulysses escaping from the Cyclops, mirroring Bac’s classical themes. Also a stunning head of Medusa by Nick Allen.
