Dame Mary Durack - storey teller

Our last day in Australia, and sadly very overcast. We went for a walk through Burswood Park and this was one of the delightful statues scattered around the park. It depicts Dame Mary Durack, a well known Australian historical chronicler reading to herself as a child.
Its very Victorian but a setting that can mean so much to those who care!

You can plan for a lot on vacation but not the weather.

It wasn't the best of days for you. We only go to the Burswood area if we're going to a show so I haven't seen this lovely statue. I might have to remedy that. Safe travels :)

Not a great sculpture fan but this grabbed me, I think it was the facial expressions.

I think the brolly girls need to get over there and sit on the bench with them :) Have a safe trip home - so sad you were on the other side of Australia this time! fav

@helenhall According to a plaque by the statue "The adult figure takes the role of an ancestor passing on the family history. The two "Mary's", child and adult, share a sense of purpose: their attention is riveted to each other and the volume they hold is "The Swan River Saga"
