Grounds of Sculptures is insanely beautiful. In Hamilton, NJ, my friend Job took me there a few weeks ago and despite the heat, it was gorgeous! The park/grounds were immaculate, though some of the scultpures could have been a bit cleaner.

The life size sculptures were eerie and amazing at the same time. Throughout, there are modern sculptures as well. I cannot recommend this enough. What a place!

Right when you get there, you’re greeted by these statues…though you do have to look around a bit. They’re so strikingly real, the kids on the roof did make me look twice!DSC_0771_small DSC_0772_small DSC_0774_small DSC_0777

Mist machines/water are strategically placed throughout the park, giving it an awesome vibe!

Yes, some nudity will be seen, but it’s tastefully done, so I’m sure many prude Americans will gauk a bit.

This is Mr. Johnson himself, the founder of the spectacular grounds, pulling a Hitchcock.

One of my favorites…you walk along and hear someone sing along to Carly Simon…could it be? Someone showering?

The next few shots are all based on a painting (almost all sculpture set-up are), and the first picture is a shot of the painting (in sculpture) so you can see what it’s based on.

The realness of these sculptures and their scenery is just phenominal.
