A life-size Bronze sculpture group of two children sharing an afternoon outdoors with their pet terrier, as they share a book together. The models were local children.
The little girl sits on a tree stump that is surrounded by flowers; her toddler brother rests on a small rock bordered by grasses, his gaze fixed on his sister with rapt attention to the story she is reading.
The sculpture celebrates the innocence of childhood, the joy of reading, and the freedom of a summer day. Rich details highlight this lifelike sculpture, from the finely crafted flowers, the ribbons in the girl’s hair, the illustrations in the storybook and the little boy’s wiggling toes.
