A Deaf And Dumb Sculptor

There has just been placed outside St. Saviour's Church, for the Deaf

and Dumb, Oxford Street, London, a statue of "The Good Shepherd," which

has been entirely modelled and carved by Mr. Joseph Gawen, a deaf mute,

who was a pupil of the late Mr. Behnes, and an assistant of the late Mr.

Foley, R.A. The statue is pronounced by competent judges to be an

admirable work of art. He also executed a marble bust of the wife of Sir

G. E. Hodgkinson. Some years ago he produced a splendid model in

competition for the Wellington Memorial.
