Description

Mandy Greer created three works for the Faye G. Allen Children's Center based on themes found in the folklore section of the Central Library.

Phoenix Fairy is at the far end of the play area.

The Phoenix Fairy is perched upon a red, patterned branch above the librarians' information desk. The feathers that make up the majestic bird are individually sewn from different patterns and shades of red fabric, each one layered with a translucent red fabric, sandwiching a variety of sequins and glitter. Yellow and turquoise tail feathers cascade from the back of the bird. According to Greer, The Phoenix Fairy represents the continual rebirth of knowledge.

Location
