Sanctuary for Little Bird

Bronze sculpture of little girl trying to give aid to a wounded bird, by John Bennett, Texas State Artist 2010.

The other little twin posed for this piece. She wants to help the little wounded bird, but how? Her right hand is both a shelter and healing tool. Does she touch it to the bird or just use it to fend off further harm. Her toes curl up on one foot, down on the other, showing her conflicted thoughts on what exactly to do for the creature in dire straits.
