I came across these sculpted wonders while meandering along a garden path. Each figure elegantly depicts a story of chivalry and unconditional love for one’s parents.

Here’s the latest snippet from a cosmic activity book my collaborator, Mary, and I have been working on. It’s a classical reasoning game called Odd-One-Out, where 3-4 words are provided, but one doesn’t fit, thus being the odd one out.
