'Summer' is a Victorian era sculpture located in theRoyal Botanic Gardens. This is one of the 'Four Seasons' statues that adorn the Palace Gardens Steps. They came from Italy in 1883 from the studio of Charles Francis Summers, an Australian-born sculptor living in Rome. The steps were their original location but later they were separated and distributed around the gardens, where some lost vital body parts and adornments. They were restored by Australian sculptor Jacek Luszczyk who recreated missing parts. The restored statues were unveiled in their original location in 2010. 'Spring' and 'Summer' are located at the top of the steps, with 'Autumn' and 'Winter' located at the bottom.
