You have probably seen this statue in a garden or on the television without ever giving it much thought. The statue was originally a bronze and sculpted in 1936 by the American sculptor and teacher Sylvia Shaw Haskins. A number of her sculptors one prizes and were appreciated, but as is with most artists she was never able to fully appreciate the fruits of her labor. The Bird Girl Statue was widely unknown until 1994 when it was on the cover of “Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil” by John Berendt. Since then it has been a fine addition to gardens and landscapes across the world. While most of the statues sold are not bronze, they are still identical copies in every other aspect. Slyvia Shaw Haskins would be proud to see so many different people appreciating her artwork.
