vintage collette

I’ve been toying with the idea of putting a St Francis statue in my garden this summer, so I’ve been keeping an eye out at estate sales.. of course I’ve seen some but none that really catch my eye. Then I had a brilliant idea the other day…. I want a Robert Collett statue in my garden. A statue replicating the photo of him feeding birds. How can I make this happen? hmmm……

Robert Collett (Dec. 2, 1842 - Jan 27, 1913) was a Norwegian zoologist. He worked with vertebrates, primarily fishes. From 1864 he was curator at the Zoological Museum in Oslo. In 1882 he became its director and from 1884 was a professor there. He described many new species of fish, spiders and other organisms. ~ Wikipedia
