The Frank Lloyd Wright Full Size Sprite Sculpture with Sceptre is a striking reproduction of the original sculpture that sat atop the exterior walls of Midway Gardens. This beautiful, geometric architectural statue was conceived in 1914 for the specific purpose of adorning and watching over Midway Gardens, once a center for premier entertainment, fine food and music on Chicago's lake front. The end of Midway Gardens came in 1920 when Prohibition was declared. The building was finally closed and demolished in October of 1929. Midway Gardens was bulldozed into Lake Michigan as a break-wall. As the story goes, a member of the Midway Gardens wrecking crew either rescued the Sprites from the lake or snatched them before they were destroyed.
Each piece is hand cast from materials Frank Lloyd Wright loved to design with, concrete and cast stone. The most popular and familiar statuary item is the Midway Gardens Sprite. Full Size replicas of the originals are available in three styles, Sprite, Sprite with Comb, and Sprite with Baton. Full size Sprites are hand cast in sandstone. Wt: 300lbs. Ht: 64"
