Billionaire donors Laura and John Arnold support far more in Maryland than police surveillance

Modeled after Fifi D'Orsay, who played naughty French girls in 1930s Hollywood movies, the chanteuse forms the voluptuous back of a seat big enough for six. Mademoiselle's ample bosom is artfully tipped with teapot lids. The outré garden has hosted occasional Easter Bonnet Brawls attended by local luminaries: Warhol superstar Holly Woodlawn, Joel Grey, Alan Sues of "Laugh-In" fame, and Lily Tomlin. Nichols has party photos of guests in unhinged chapeaux — a titanic hat in the shape of Cathedral of Notre-Dame, another composed of garden flats fitted with pansies. Backdropped by the puckish sculptures, the down-the-rabbit-hole scenes become studies for a Tim Burton movie.
