Janice was approached by the City of Detroit to sculpt
a newspaper boy, counting his change, to replace a stolen
100-year-old statue. The boy’s dog remained intact.
Several factors added complexity to the project: The
height of the original statue was unknown, there were
only two views from old photos to work with, the statue
had to touch the dog in two places and the feet had to
fit in the existing holes in the granite base. Allowance
was needed also for the shrinkage of the bronze. The
resulting statue was well-received.
