Tomorrow, July 30, marks a momentous day in the Fort Worth Botanic Garden’s rose garden. As the final jewel set in the crown of the rose garden’s nearly $1 million renovation, a new lion’s head custom carved out of leuders limestone will be installed as a fountain at the top of the “ramp” in the rose garden, according to senior horticulturist Steve Huddleston in a Wednesday email.

 

The Dallas sculptor, Kevin Austin, will be in the rose garden around 9 or 9:30 a.m. to install the piece that the rose garden committee approved and that he carved. Above is a photo of the clay model he cast before carving the actual piece in stone. Below also is a vintage photo of the original lion’s head installed in 1933.
