Dutch Historic Garden gets a new Statue

A post on Historical Gardens reports on the arrival of a statue - The Suicide of Lucretia - into the kitchen garden of Beeckestijn, a buitenplaats (lit. 'outside place') or summer residence in the town of Velsen-Zuid in north Holland. 

The statue dates to 1777 and was the work of the brothers Ignazio and Filippo Collino (sometimes Collini.)
