The emperor's daughter- Nicola Hicks
This is The Emperor's Daughter by Nicola Hicks. She made this is 1998 and it is made out of bronze. I really like this bronze statue because i love how it looks like the little girl is riding her dog. When I was little and had a big dog I always tried to make my horse to ride around but she would never let me. I think it is adorable and it shows the love between a child and their animals and that there is a special bond between the two. I don't see the reference to the emperor but i still really like it. I also think it is really cool that it is not smooth and it looks scratchy but you can still see the form of both the animal she is riding on and the little girl.
