In the work, “Bread Upon The Water,” by Jerry Joslin, the duck was shown with its wings spread wide in a setting of two other ducks and three children in a tranquil stream. The main duck was discovered missing by a city employee on Jan. 8.

Nancy Nye, director of the Arts Council of Lake Oswego, estimated that it would cost about $5,000 to replace the duck.

The Arts Council is offering a reward for information leading to the recovery of the duck. People are asked to contact the Lake Oswego Police Department.

The statue has been standing since 1987, becoming one of the very first works of Lake Oswego’s famed Gallery Without Walls.

“It was really, really nice. It was a beloved piece,” Nye said. “It is sad to see part of it missing.”
