An annual sculpture exhibition returned to The Savill Garden on Tuesday.
The exhibition is made up of 40 pieces created by 19 artists from around the country.
All sculptures on display at the garden in Windsor Great Park have been inspired by the natural world and are made from materials including stainless steel, ceramic and bronze.
The exhibition is set up to encourage exploration around The Savill Garden and introduces an element of surprise amid the planting.
It was curated by artist Mike Bigland who belongs to the Oxford Sculptors Group.
The sculptures will be sold after the exhibition and were chosen for their quality and affordability.
Mike said: “It is a wonderful location and each piece is set in an area where the colours, plants and light work best over the whole two months they will be in place.”
Harvey Stephens, head of The Savill Garden, said that he is ‘very pleased’ with this year’s installation of sculptures.
He said: “This year’s exhibition includes some particularly interesting pieces.
“There is a great deal of late summer colour in the garden, particularly with the herbaceous borders, which really compliment the sculpture.”
Sculpture in the Garden runs until October 31.
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
