Long Description:
Located in Sarasota, Florida is "The Ringling" which has numerous venues for visiting, one of which is the Dwarf Garden.

"Peeking out from among various subtropical plants, a cast of comical limestone statues pose and gesture to amuse their audience. The whimsical figures are players from the commedia dell’arte, a type of improvisational theater developed in Italy in the 16th and 17th centuries." (from The Ringling website)
