The Alice in Wonderland Monument: Central Park’s Most Kid-Friendly Sculpture
The Alice in Wonderland statue in Central Park is one of the most popular out of the dozens that stand throughout the park. It is a depiction of a scene from Lewis Carroll’s classic novel, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, and shows the protagonist, Alice, sitting on top of a mushroom and reaching out to grasp the White Rabbit’s pocketwatch. The Mad Hatter stands beside her, looking like he could burst into hysterical laughter at any given moment, while the famed Cheshire Cat looks intently over Alice’s shoulder at the scene before him. At the base of the sculpture are engraved words from the first lines of a quirky and nonsensical poem by Lewis Carroll called Jabberwocky. This sculpture is a must-see attraction for any fan of Disney movies, classic literature, or Alice in Wonderland.
Central Park received the Alice in Wonderland statue in 1959. It was sculpted by José de Creeft and commissioned by George Delacorte in honor of Delacorte’s late wife, Margarita. Delacorte then donated it as a gift to the children living in New York City. More than 50 years after the installation of the Alice in Wonderland sculpture, Central Park, New York, visitors continue to make visiting it part of their itinerary, especially if they have children in tow. To this day, children from all over love hiding in it, climbing on it, using it as a basis for their make-believe games, and enjoying the textures of the sculpture. The 11-foot-tall bronze statue has become glossy in places due to the number of tiny hands that have touched it over the years, only adding to the statue’s character and charm. Stories like this classic tale are not just for kids, however! The Alice in Wonderland statue in Central Park is a beautiful and intricately designed sculpture that attracts people of all ages.
