In the immortal words of The Pointer Sisters, "I've got a new attitude." That is what this statue reminds me of. It is titled The L'il Blader. The artist was able to capture just the right amount of spunk and attitude in this piece. It resides in a small but beautiful park in the city. It also happens to be the same park my daughter was married in. In fact, the statue reminds me of her. What I found most interesting about this piece is the girl is wearing roller blades not ice skates. Art historians should have no trouble dating this work as circa 1995.
