Sister City Gift
This statue was a gift to Phoenix from sister city Chengdu China in 1996. It's called "Giant Panda - Maternal Love". Chengdu is home to Chengdu Panda Base, a world renowned panda breeding center.
The statue has been placed behind the Phoenix Arts Commission building on the edge a park in downtown Phoenix.
I was at the park on Friday to attend the 2nd annual Phoenix Art Festival. It's not nearly as big as the arts festival in Tempe that I featured last week but it is growing and hopefully will someday be just as big. After all, Tempe has been doing theirs for many, many years. I did find a few things to purchase so it was a success as far as I'm concerned.
I have an new post on Sharon's Sojournstoday. Today I'm featuring my favorite Christmas in London photos.
