The Statue of All Mothers

In the center courtyard of the Boston Public Library stands a mother - child statue entitled  Bacchante and Infant Faun, sculpted by Frederick William MacMonnies. This is actually a copy installed in the 1980's. The original was "banned in Boston" in 1896 due to nudity. The original is on display in in the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
