Where did you find all these different faces? Were they in an old cemetery or various locations around Sarasota? They all have a similar style and appear to be carved from the same type of stone.
They were lining the sidewalk in a kind of hidden garden next to the Ringling Museum. I wondered if they were a tribute to the various dwarfs who used to perform in the circus. Certainly the heights and proportions of the statues suggest dwarfs.
WOW! That’s really interesting and unexpected! Thanks for the additional info!
