Family Sculpture on 18th and Market

A great sculpture entitled "Family" by Timothy Duffield, between 18th and 19th, on Market Street.

I couldn't find much about this sculpture on the web, but I think it's wonderful.

The selfless heroism of the mother and father, the fragile hopes of family, the sheer joy of play, the beauty of the human form, how it all must collapse one day, but how we silently radiate in eternity.

Where has the lovely sculpture gone? First noticed it missing 1/5/2016 and thought it was pulled down because of the Mummer's Parade route change. On 5/4/2016 I see a garden planted in its place. Has The Family, no longer homeless, find a new home?

I'd like to know where it went, also. I miss it. Took me a while to get used to it . . . but I did . . . and now it's gone.
