A Child Forever

This bronze sculpture is found in a small park across the road from the park with the fountain that I showed on Tuesday. Located in a children's playground it shows Peter Pan atop a gnarly tree and is inscribed "to the children at play". It is an exact replica of the sculpture found in Kensington Gardens and was commissioned by local residents in 1929 and unveiled on the same day as the fountain across the road. I'll show you some details of the creatures hiding around the base tomorrow.
