Diana And The Hounds

Sculptor William Leslie Bowles; founder A.B. Brunton
Cast bronze statue on granite pedestal
Conservatory, Fitzroy Gardens

William Leslie Bowles joined the Australian War Memorial as a sculptor and model maker in 1924. After leaving the memorial he took on public commissions.

In 1935, three of Bowles' designs were selected to replace the existing and much deteriorated statuary in Fitzroy Gardens. His Diana and the Hounds replaced a cement statue copied from the Roman Diana, Goddess of Mood and Contemplation, held in the Vatican.
