The centerpiece of the fountain that feeds the moat is crucible once used to pour molten bronze into one of Pagan's father's sculptures. Dean likes the contrast between the 2100-degree metal and the cool water that now gushes forth. Dean's studio entrance is accessed by crossing the drawbridge over the moat by the waterfall and pond area full of koi goldfish and minnows.
As a descendant of William the Conqueror and Henry II, Dean has a special place in his heart for lions, sculpting them for his cornice pieces. If you look closely, you will see that Dean's leos have manes formed of leaves rather than fur.
