Jamie Pickernell won the People’s Choice award at the Auckland Botanic Gardens’ biennial ‘Sculpture in the Gardens’ exhibition in 2012 with this magnificent effort, entitled ‘Bird Lady’. This piece proved so popular that it was purchased by the good people of Auckland and put on permanent display in the gardens, where she still hangs out to this day, sitting invitingly on the end of a park bench with plenty of space for others to join her. She looks like she’s craving your company.
So here we have a popular and beautiful piece of art that has room for plenty more folks on the bandwagon. You guessed it! Just like a certain football club we all know and love. Here she is, reaching out to one and all, saying “come join us, as we make our final push towards a possible scudetto!”
