“Kids are welcome to climb all over!”

The sculpture was constructed in 1959 by José de Creeft under the commission of philanthropist George Delacorte so that children could visit and experience the wonder of Lewis Carroll’s classic story. Atypical of most sculptures, children are invited to climb, touch and crawl all over Alice and her friends. In fact, through the decades thousands of hands and feet have literally polished parts of the statue’s surface smooth.

I saw this statue twice.....The first time, I came upon it by accident, while visiting my boyfriend in NYC. The second time, after I had moved here, I searched for hours and hours to find it. When I finally did, it wasn't at all like I remembered it...... But glorious all the same. I love this statue because I used to imagine that the characters came alive at night and would move around the park...then in the morning, they'd be in a different place. Now that I live in NYC, I KNOW that is what happens. I mean, stranger things HAVE happened here!

I'm always shy around brass sculptures on platforms - a look but don't touch fear conditioned into me. This one lets you break the rules though. Check out where people have climbed and touched this statue. It's an awesome photo op if you've got kids...and if you don't.
