Double Duty

If you walk up the sidewalk to the sales office at the Cave Hill Cemetery at Louisville, Kentucky, to your left on that path is a bronze statue of an exuberant little girl with her arms stretched as if she can reach the sky. The statue is titled “La Breeza – The Good Fairy”. The plaque on the base of the statue says that it is a reproduction of the original work of Oscar Mattison in the 1950s.

That same statue is used in the Lexington Cemetery at Lexington, Kentucky, atop the Wiggins Family Monument. The monument has a statue of “La Breeza – The Good Fairy” atop a square granite base. In this case the statue is used as part of their gravestone—not as freestanding art. Mattison’s sculpture is doing double duty.
