This fountain honors children’s book author Frances Eliza Hodgson Burnett (1849-1924). The Conservatory Garden, which reopened to the public in 1937, was chosen as the perfect site for this memorial erected by Friends of Burnett. The reclining boy playing the flute and a young girl holding the bowl may represent Mary and Dickon, the main characters in The Secret Garden. The bowl is a functioning birdbath where small birds drink.
Really enjoyed seeing this sculpture, your lovely photo with the slight color on the figures, and the link to the author.
Thanks Jet. I must reread the Secret Garden sometime.

Loved her books (well, just read a Secret Garden, A Litttle Princess, and Little Lord Fauntleroy).
I haven’t read A Little Princess yet. I must add it to my book list.
