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?
Next time the college has a New York bus, this sculpture might become one of your new destinations!!
