begging girl statue

We visited the Manila Seedling bank a few days ago. The Manila Seedling bank is a kind of shopping center along EDSA in Quezon City, where one can buy plants, flowers, and many colorfull orchids.  I will write a story about it later. Aside from plants and flowers some stores also offer ornaments for the garden and for the house. 

At one of the stores I saw a stuatue of a girl begging with a cap in her hands.

A view from a different angle might give an other impression to the visitors.

I do not know the artist who made it, and I haven’t asked the store owner why he put the statue next to the entrance . . . . . . .
