Mayda Jensen’s bronze sculptures of animals each have their own expression, personality, movement, and reaction to the setting. In Director, the mouse appears confident and proud, standing upright with his nose in the air. This sculpture was specifically selected for the entrance to the Lena Meijer Children’s Garden. At this location, most guests pass through a large, welcoming entrance. However, smaller guests (and mice) can enter through a charming, smaller-scale portal.
