Franklin Children's Garden Franklin: 36" H, Bear: 54" H, Beaver: 50" H Goose: 50" H, Snail: 18" H, Rabbit: 32" H
Sculpted from the Canadian Book series, Franklin the Turtle. Commissioned by the City of Toronto, Centre Island.
Our Franklin the Turtle books were read and reread as beloved bedtime stories. I knew that sculpting this incorporated character would be more challenging than it looked but I wanted Franklin and his friends to be endearing, and have a spark of animal energy.
