While visiting Baltimore I made sure to take sometime to see the bronze sculptures that grace the parks around the Washington Monument in the neighborhood of Mount Vernon (at the intersection of North Charles Street and Mount Vernon Place).
The Washington Monument stands tall behind the Marquis de Lafayette atop his noble steed.
The horse wasn’t the only dignified creature gracing the parks of Mount Vernon, this seated lion was very stoic, if not a bit aloof.
There was a wee turtle and a child playing in a fountain
A pretty lady was doing stretches in one of the fountains
I found this soldier with a smashing good hat
Isn’t that a great dragon?
There was a series of four sculptures representing different themes. This one is Force, he seemed very stern.
The War sculpture had a helmet that was the perfect for protecting a Tiny Hippo
The Peace statue was very relaxing
Order was the most frightening statue, I had to run away from a very large cat!
The sculptures and fountains that grace the parks of Mount Vernon are definitely worth a visit, see you there!
