Alice and Others in Central Park

Across from the boating pond and a stones throw away from the statue of famous children’s book author Han Christian Andersen feeding the ducklings, a different scene is taking place. Often obscured by a mob of children, this Central Park favorite is a bronze piece of Alice and others. The artist, José de Creeft, cited the original illustrations of John Tenniel as his main inspiration for this 1959 piece. Do you notice any similarities to the illustrations? Differences?
