A monster in the dream garden?

If you look carefully at yesterday's photo, you might notice someone sitting up high, behind the palm fronds.

According to the landscape architect, Richard Weller:
Sitting on a small porch off the front of the Dream Home, and laughing at all of this, is the garden's gnome - a monstrous figure of an 'antipodean', the sort of mythical, mutated people that, back in the Middle Ages, Europeans thought might live in the antipodes.
