Enigmatic sphinx sculpture with required lizard at Vizcaya

Vizcaya was built James Deering, a vice president of International Harvester, in the teens and twenties. It's a good thing he had pernicious anemia and his doctors told him to avoid the cold, or we wouldn't have an Italian style villa on the shore of Biscayne Bay in Miami, Florida. Here is some sculpture from the extensive gardens with one of the ever present lizards which inhabit south Florida.
