I told this story over a year ago, but I’ll repeat it for my newer readers. In the foreground of the above photo and in the photo to the left are two statues called the Biltmore Sprites. They were originally created by Frank Lloyd Wright for Midway Gardens in Chicago which closed in 1929. The building was demolished and pushed into Lake Michigan as a breakwall. It is said that the sprites were rescued by a member of the wrecking crew who held on to them at his farm for many years. They passed through many hands over the years and were eventually donated to the Arizona Biltmore by the Taliesin Associated Architects.
