2. Introduction of Prairie bird girl statue
The Sylvia bird girl sculpture is a garden artwork. The sculptor want to design a potential fountain original, a small hole in the bottom of the bowl and a slot in the front to let water overflow. The bronze bird girl statue is 50 inches high (130cm). She is a young girl in a simple dress. With a sad or meditative expression, she stands firmly and quietly. She straightens up, her head tilts to the left shoulder, her elbows support her waist, and her hands carry two bowls.
Her posture with two bowls in her hand is considered to be symmetrical posture, which like holding the balance of justice. Some people also believe that the posture of the bird girl does not actually symbolize the balance between good and evil. On the contrary, the bowl in her hand is to hold food or water for birds. The inscription on the bird girl’s pedestal reads: we have faith and would rather leave our bodies and be with the Lord.
Bonawangtil cemetery is the original home of the bird statue. Loved by many fans of the best-selling “midnight in the garden of good and evil”, some people cut pieces of the bird woman’s base from Bonawangtil cemetery as a souvenir.
