Strange concrete grotto.

Bizarre Yard Sculptures

The yard with the sculptures is right off 98, a bit overgrown -- and not sure how close to get, as you have to walk through a gate.

Sculpted grotto.

Bizarre Yard Sculptures

This bizarre sculpture sits in the front yard of a house at the corner of Hwy. 98 and Old Dade City Road in Kathleen, Florida. The solid concrete sculpture contains many figures, from that of a seated Chinese man to many small animals.

In the yard beside the house sits a huge Chinese dragon and some sort of bird. The dragon must be fifty feet long, and the bird almost as long. In front of the dragon is an incense bowl with recently burned incense sticks.
