This statue of a young girl - seeming to set a bird free - is at Mornington Cemetery on the Mornington Peninsula.
The figure is a slate grey but the bird is gold toned.
Like finding gold wings
Like breathing new life spirit
For the love story of Pygmalion and Galatea see HERE!
And the name "Galatea" means sleeping love.
The figure is a little classical and yet there is a feeling that this statue may not have been poured from some reusable mould! It seems to have been specially cast for this grave.
(In wanderings of cemeteries, I have not seen a statue like this.)
The grave gives little clue. The headstone seems low and its nameless.
