Sculpture created for Catherine Park…

This was sought out and is definitely my favourite!
The Girl with a Pitcher (which is broken thus the milkmaid is distraught) was glorified by the beloved Russia poet Pushkin in his poem “The Tsarskoe Selo Statue” and the only sculpture created specially for the Catherine Park.
Buried in the ground before the Germans reached the town it was saved and remained undamaged.  You will see why this remains a gift ….
