Profile image of Robert MilehamRobert Mileham, whose ability to capture the spontaneity and bounce of a dog and those dreamy moments in a child`s life is nothing short of a mystery. His work is really all commission resulting from people having seen his work in an exhibition or in a collection which are as far a field as the USA, Hong Kong, Belgium, Switzerland and of course Britain. He must be one of the finest sculptors of girls around.

Sculpture description:
Bronze Child Girl Slightly Smaller than Life Size Commission sculptures/statues for sale or commission by one of the leading Childhood Sculptors today The Prize Winning Robert Mileham. "Robert Mileham was commissioned to sculpt Mary for a cobbled courtyard in Hampshire. This yard was part of a Country Workhouse between 1791 and 1834. The owner wanted a statue in memory of this, but as it would be a daily reminder, it should not be depressing. Despite the terrible conditions the poor lived in at that period, she was probably better off than her city counter-part. In reality she would probably have been an ill fed, miserable child. It was agreed however, to produce a work, which would be uplifting even on a rainy day. At the risk of being accused of sentimentality, Robert produced a sculpture of how they might have preferred to be remembered, not as there were. He made her lean and ragged, but making the best of things with a smile. She is in a Contrapposto Pose and was installed in July 2002.
Artist's comments:
This first cast in bronze is dressed as a girl in the workhouse before 1834. As records of the clothing worn in such places before 1834 are non-existent, Robert chose Gainsborough`s painting of a little cottage girl with puppy circa 1785 as the closest contemporary model he could find. She carries a jug to take to the local families working in the hop fields at harvest time. Note. Mary was stolen. Her replacement is called Lottie. Various cunning security devices have been installed both on site and (a tracking) inside her.
