For example there is a bronze statue of Hans Christian
Anderson's Little Mermaid in Copenhagen Harbour, there is a bronze
statue of the Musicians of Bremen (the donkey with the dog, the cat
and the rooster standing on his back) at Bremen in Germany, a
statue of Cyrano De Bergerac in Bergerac, France,
I would suggest a bronze statue of Long John Silver from Robert Louis Stephenson's book "Treasure Island" for the city of Bristol.
Long John was married to a black lady and he would make a fantastic character study for a sculptor with his missing leg, crutch, three cornered hat, parrot on his shoulder, pistol and cutlass. In the book Long John Silver ran a Bristol dockside tavern called "The Spyglass". The statue could become a wonderful tourist attraction for the city and I am sure Bristolians would love it. You could even market and sell special " Long John Silver Rum" in the shops nearby along with copies of the book. Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!"
I believe that the the statue should be in the classical /
realist style, not a piece of contemporary art.
