The Shakespeare Sculptures by Greg Wyatt

Circling the Elizabethan Garden, eight Shakespearean statues by sculptor Greg Wyatt evoke The Tempest, Julius Caesar, King Lear, Hamlet, Twelfth Night, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Henry IV, Part 2, and Macbeth


These works reflect the sculptor's response to key moments and characters in each play. They are half-size versions of sculptures created by Wyatt for the Great Garden at New Place in Stratford-upon-Avon. The statues were added to the Elizabethan Garden in 2003 and 2004 through the support of Barbara C. Newington, Chairman of the Newington-Cropsey Foundation and John Chwat, president of the American Friends of the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust.


The pillar supporting each sculpture is inscribed with the particular passage that inspired it. Click on Learn More beneath the statue to read Shakespeare's lines.
