Both built elements and works of art have an important role in the artistic design of manor house parks’ spatial structure. Sculptures, as emphasised visual elements, not only organize or structure garden spaces, not only delight us by their shapes and proportions or produce dramatic contrast effects, but in most cases carry symbolic contents as well. Due to their art historical significance, as well as the messages and allusions they carry through their underlying contents, they have a strong atmospheric and emotional role as well. The article presents the outcomes resulting from the historic research and field survey of the sculptures found in more than a hundred Transylvanian manor house parks.
