Fairy of Hakodate (Summer) statue, Hakodate, Japan, public art

Public Art: Fairy of Hakodate (Summer) statue

Also Known As : Summer Fairy of Hakodate.

Sculptor: © Kaori Uta

Description: Bronze statue a bare footed summer fairy, holding on tight to her hat. I'm not too sure but I suspect that the scarf around her neck is often replaced because she seems to appear in an assortment of them. The statue stands on a marble plinth between benches.

Date unveiled:  The summer fairy was unveiled in 1999 as part of the Hakodate public art project.

Attention: If anyone could provide more information about the origins of the Hakodate Fairy statues (summer and winter) I would be more than grateful.
