Sculptor Paul Roger-Bloche Mother and Child Statue

 On the way back from getting coffee with a colleague last Thursday, before the evening session of Open House, S. showed me this statue.   Today I returned to photograph it in the sinking October sunlight.

As I drove home, I was thinking about a mother’s love for her child after spending a little time photographing the sculpture.

One block from school – Paul Roger-Bloche bronze sculpture,

L’Enfant,

created  1899.

Overbrook Boulevard and Ravilla Street intersection.

Here’s a link to the story about how Boy Scout Troop 224 rediscovered this statue beneath vegetation, when just the head was showing through.
