“Let us be the hands of the village

that come together to raise a

healthy child.”

Statement and clay sculpture (now gone) by Ellie Carrithers

Notes from the restoration of Millennium Plaza, 2023: 
Ellie Carrithers’s original clay sculpture was stolen from the plaza.

The sculpture displayed here was created by artist and friend of Ellie Carrithers, Jane Gutting, after extensive consultation and discussion of Carrithers’s original inspiration and motivation in 2002.
