Robert Amendola sculpted this piece at the personal request of Mr.Kenneth Lynch in the 1920's. This piece has a unique story we are pleased to share. Mr. Lynch had pencil sketches of what he envisioned as being the ideal garden piece. He conveyed these ideas to Robert Amendola and with the many hand sketches provided, Mr.Amendola was able to create Growing Things in a 33" tall model. This original piece was widely accepted and a larger 52" model was created. When Mr. Lynch was interviewed regarding what this figure represented to him he recited the following: "Simplicity, uncomplicated, virtuous, innocent, unworldly, unspoiled, honest, sweet, trusting, lovable, beautiful, desirable, young, feminine, daughter-like, natural, delicate." Mr.Lynch went on further to say that all of this had to be related to flowers and gardens, and this seems to sum up what he sees in the figure.
