What is a Flimp?
A Flimp is a flower imp. The word was invented by Geneva Mercer when she sculpted flower imps to cover her fountain, Flimp Fountain (1937), which is part of the Museum’s permanent collection. Flower imps, related to elves, fairies, and wood sprites, are little capricious characters who live in gardens and are responsible for the strange and wonderful things that happen there.
