thursday in the hood


 Three Dancing Maidens, 
constructed in 1910 by the famed German Sculptor Walter Schott. 
(It is also known, somewhat less euphoniously, 
as the Untermeyer Fountain, after the family 
who presented it to the City in 1947).
Central Park

  2. Great shot D. You have a marvelous perspective. Can almost feel the
    cool metal on a hot day.

  18. Superb. I'd expect however, to find this in France, not in Central Park...and you sure wouldn't find it in Ocala. But I think we have a statue of a Confederate general...
