An architectural marvel, the Midway Gardens were designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and built in 1914 in Chicago, Illinois. The Frank Lloyd Wright Spites adorned the entrance way to the gardens. The Sprites were almost lost to history when the entertainment complex was destroyed in 1929. Someone salvaged them and today we can enjoy this superbly designed garden statues. These unique sculptures were the result of a collaborative process by Italian artist Alphonzo Ianelli and Frank Lloyd Wright. This garden statuary is made by the dry cast stone process, which produces durable and very detailed replicas. Frank Lloyd Wright reproductions are original American designs and the Sprites are among the most popular of his garden statuary.
