This sculpture of a young woman holding up doves is located in front of the University of Arizona main library, on the north side near a courtyard with other sculptures. It's a really lovely sculpture, and the artist depicts a gentleness in the way the girl is holding up the doves, looking upward. The four doves are all attached together, between the girl's hands. The area around Girl With Doves has some beautiful landscaping and lots of places to sit and take a break from studies.
This is one of many pieces of art located around the U of A campus.
From the Smithsonian Art database:
A nude female stands with both arms raised in the air. Between her arms are four doves in flight. The doves are connected by their wings. The figure's head is tilted back and she is looking up at the doves.
