Garden of Good & Evil?

This of course reminded me of Savannah's bird girl. Even though I cannot read these headstones, the landscaping was purposefully and beautifully done, I think.

Stephanie,

What a great pic! I have always loved that statue!

It led me to wonder whether other versions of this statue were made, and they were (see below)!

It sounds like the other versions are all accounted for. Is the one you spotted an unauthorized copy? Or did another sculptor design the GA one years ago, without even being aware of the one in Bonaventure?

Not to mention that one original copy was supposedly delivered to my home state of MA in the '30s..now I want to find it!

Thanks, Liesa!

I must say I just assumed it was a copy, but now I wonder!
