Item Details
"Marisa the Magical Bird" is a cast-bronze head created by T.J. Dixon and Jim Nelson (20' x 12' x 4'; 2010) for the Rady Children's Hospital in San Diego. An inscription, “Marisa the Magical Bird, she’ll grant your wishes, just leave the words,” invites children to leave written wishes inside the locket of this mosaic and cast-bronze sculpture. Marisa’s long tail is also a slide and she is perched atop a mound of soft green turf at the center of Carley’s Magical Gardens, on the 2nd floor terrace of the Acute Care Pavilion, where she is adored by all!
