This sculpture is in Rock City, near Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga, Tennessee. We were there in 2017. This sculpture is called “Maloria” and the artist is Matt Dutton. It is a figure designed to evoke a sense of whimsy, history and magic. According to the artist, “Maloria reaches out to gesture to the deer below, while a small songbird lands on her finger. Her appearance is stoic, reminiscing days of lore and fairy tale. Her long cloak drapes to the ground like heavy sackcloth sheltering her from the elements, while adding to the mystery of her identify. A protector and guardian of the gardens, she communicates with the animals and gnomes that reside at Rock City to ensure the longevity of its natural splendor.”
“In the Tennessee where I grew up, there were animals, farms, wagons and mules.” ~ Tina Turner.
