Little Bird and the Statue

A touching story about the power of magic, love and accompany.

A brand-new statue was built in the middle of the town square, and a little bird looking for a place to stay found the statue. The statue gradually deteriorated over time and was transformed into various new things, including bricks to protect the city, a bear at the school pond, and a wolf to guard the sheep. Regardless of the changes, the little bird had stayed with the statue and never stopped singing and telling stories.
However, the moment of separation is coming, and it seems that the statue will disappear forever. Can they meet again in the end?
