Three Stone Steps carries a snake made in Haiti from recycled oil drums. Here it is:
To be honest, despite it being a very clever design, it’s never sold all that well. In fact, some people are drawn to it from a distance and then recoil when they get closer. (Actually, this happened just this Sunday at our booth at the Baltimore Farmers Market and Bazaar.)
We also carry a dragonfly. It’s not our bestseller, but it’s fairly well loved–well, at least people don’t actually squirm at the sight of it:
Without paging Dr. Freud, we don’t really know why some insects are loved (see dragonfly, ladybug, butterfly) and others strike at some deep, dark emotional chord, but we do know if we were putting art out in a garden, we’d opt for both the snake and the dragonfly. If you want to do the same, you can find them right here.
