Whimsical art that has mysteriously appeared in a Brandywine Hundred park is generating smiles for people out for walks – and hundreds of fans online.
On Monday, Sandy Meredith posted a snapshot on nextdoor, saying “To whomever is leaving these fantastic rock creations along the path between Tarleton and Cardiff…THANK YOU!
“You have made me become more observant of my surrounding while walking the dog and have put a smile on my face. I LOVE watching for them as the seasons change.”
In its first two days, the post earned 688 smiles, hearts and really big smiles from people as far away as California.
None of the dozen or so people commenting, however, revealed anything about the artist(s?) creating them.
Seeking art clues
A reporting trip to the site generated few clues.
On Wednesday, the completed sculpture that Meredith saw – three stones painted to look like a classic snowman – was still nestled in tree roots.
A body-less head topped a nearby stump.
And two more painted stones lingered near other trees. It was unclear if they were how the sculptures began or ended.
The park – called Tarleton Park on the side facing that development and Cardiff Park on the other end – is the kind of friendly place with Little Free Libraries at each entrance and, now, with its own special art.
