Out of the Ashes

Just below the Phoenix Inn Suites, in downtown Bend, is this beautiful bronze sculpture "Dancing for Flossie" by Danae Bennett-Miller. Very hard to get a good picture of because of all the shadows, bright sun, and monochrome nature of the colors. One of those things you just have to see on your own!

I'm not sure of the history behind these bronze castings but the Phoenix Suites was originally the local hospital on a bit of a hill overlooking the downtown area.

Lovely setting.
