Exquisite statues abound at the Biltmore Estate. Some are within the house, others in the gardens. My favorite statue stands alone on a hill overlooking the estate. It is the statue of Diana, goddess of the hunt.
Diana is the twin of Apollo and prefers to live in the high mountains and in sacred woods. What better place for her than the Biltmore Estate?
The beautiful Diana
Her trusty hunting dog beside her, she watches over the Estate
Only a few years ago, Diana wasn't often seen by the public. She stands atop a rather steep hill and there are no gardens or other statues nearby. With the increasing popularity of the Biltmore Estate for weddings, a luxurious tent on a permanent brick foundation has been erected behind the statue. It is large enough to host 500 guests for weddings and sit-down dinners, even more for "simple" receptions. It is indeed a wonderful place but I rather dislike the intrusive tent.
