Boston, New England and fans around the country have Bruins fever. A Bruins parade is already on its way at the Boston Public Garden where the famous bronze statue "Make way for Ducklings" is decorated in yellow and black capes. 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 storys 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 image of the ducklings bronze statue 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 wall decoration needs:
Good light and happy photo making!
