|Eagles And Prey: C69|
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.
