Ichabod and the Headless Horseman Sculpture, October 2009, Sleepy Hollow NY by 

Top Ten Winner in October Avatar ~ Autumn Statue Challenge in Statues and Such Group, 28-Sep-2012

This unusual sculpture statue is across from the Phillipsburg Manor and below the Dutch Reformed Church in Sleepy Hollow NY. It is on a green and yes it is this unusual orange color. It almost looks like light rusted metal. Not sure what it is made of – but it is certainly unusual. I applied HDR in ipiccy to make the definitions clearer. Sleepy Hollow and the area do embrace their famous literary past and have amazing celebrations during Halloween season each year, which my family and I go to every year.

My name is Jane. I am an artist, writer, photographer, and an admirer of the arts. Here on RB I share my photography, writing, collages and art, and host many groups. I hope you enjoy my work.

    Best regards,

  • thank you Sunny and great quote and very true. some of us just survive and get through the day – but with my photography I feel I am really living… I met a woman the other day who said she travels for a living the past 9 years. She starting naming all these amazing places she has been to – and then when I asked about all her photos she said – SHE NEVER TOOK ANY PHOTOS AT ALL…. now that is not living…. I am still stunned…..

    Thank you!! I hope I can see it someday it’s so gorgeous!!

  • I hope you can. going to Sleepy Hollow at Halloween is AWESOME. you can tour Washington Irving’s house, visit his grave in the Old Dutch Reformed cemetery/Sleepy Hollow cemetery, visit the Phillipsburg Plantation and visit BLAZE where you walk along the Van Cortlandt manor property and see over 6,000 intricately carved pumpkins. It is the best Halloween activites and celebrations I have ever gone to and we go every year. When I find more of my photos from my visits I will post them, like Irving’s grave and the headless horseman actor and the storyteller etc.

    I love this! Have always wanted to go there; maybe you’ve given me the incentive I need….

  • if you can go – you really should. it is beautiful country up there on the Hudson and Irving’s homes and the other Hudson Valley Historical society homes are beautiful to tour. there is a plaque next to the bridge where the original Headless Horseman bridge stood. very cool area and history lives.
