When grandson Taj first encountered a life scale Seward Johnson sculpture, he wondered out loud how, “They kept the cloths clean?” That is the effect trompe-l’œil technique strives for.

In the next sculpture, the response might be, “Ewhew, what dirty sneakers.”

There was one larger than life work on display, set most appropriately among the Royal Palms.
