Sculptor: Christophe Fratin
1801-1864 • France
On a path near the Mall next to
Center Drive, a powerful display of
bird behavior is depicted in the statue of Eagles and Prey. Two large eagles with wings spread
open swoop down for the kill as they
claw into a trapped goat.
This dramatic portrayal of animals
in the wild is in perfect harmony
with the truly naturalistic setting
of Central Park.
