"At the other end of the city is Audubon Park, home of gracious sculpture and statuary that fits perfectly with the spacious,
natural surroundings. Chief among the many works is the 1922 work by Anna Hyatt Huntington, Diana
, the bronze goddess
with her dog situated in the center of the exotic lily pads in Diana Pond.
In the lovely Audubon Zoo is the Celebration of Life, Marge C. Ward’s bronze boy holding a turtle. Ward also
is represented in the Zoo by Sharing, a bronze kneeling girl and man feeding ducks, just inside the entrance to the
children’s village. Also in children’s village can be found Alferez’s 1930’s Aesop’s
Fables, reliefs depicting fictional characters from children’s literature.
Tom Tischler’s The Elephant’s Child, a bronze seated baby elephant is a popular attraction near the
elephant exhibit. A wealth of sculpture from the early 1900’s can be found throughout the zoo, as well as distinctive
Works Progress Administration artwork from the 1930’s."
