Mandy Greer created three wall-mounted sculptures for the Faye G. Allen Children's Center based on a series of folk tale themes found in the folklore section of the Central Library.

Babe is a large portrait bust of a royal blue ox whose horns are bejeweled with a random pattern of beads, buttons, sequins and embroidery on a felted wool background. According to Greer, Babe refers to discovery through investigation of one's surroundings.
