In a hidden area in the brush and woods near the edge of the Ringling Circus Museum in Sarasota, Florida there is an area I call the “Boneyard“.  This is an area the Ringlings and the Circus Museum have stored retired statues and other marble and sandstone sculptures from decades ago.  They had been stored there for future use or because they were too valuable to dispose of.  Now trees have grown up around and through them leaving a very spooky area that is also beautiful.  Here is a cherub on a pedestal that is laid out on its side and recently some boards were placed below to keep it from sinking into the earth.
