A favorite Boston landmark and tourist attraction for young and old, this bronze sculpture by Nancy Schoen was created in 1987 celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Boston Public Garden. It pays tribute to Robert McCloskeys popular children book, written in 1941, about a family of ducks who make their home here. To reach the lagoon in the Public Garden, Mrs. Mallard, the mother duck, leads her babies across a series of dangerous streets assisted by a friendly police officer. Because of the story close association with Boston, no replicas exist in other cities, with the exception of an installation in Gorky Park in Moscow at the request of Russian First Lady Raisa Gorbachev.
This Boston photo of the iconic Make Way for Ducklings monument bronze sculpture in the Boston Common is available as museum quality photography prints, canvas prints, acrylic prints or metal prints. Prints may be framed and matted to the individual liking and decorating needs:
All photographs are available for digital and print use at www.ExploringTheLight.com. Please contact me direct with any questions or request.
Good light and happy photo making!
