Humility of Man Before A Group of Ageless Animals

November 19th, 2013

That's the title of this sculpture installed in front of the tomb of Henry Bergh, who founded the ASPCA in 1866 and who "alone, in the face of indifference, opposition, and ridicule," worked to bring an end to the many barbaric acts of animal cruelty once seen as acceptable. The sculpture originally hung on the side of the ASPCA headquarters in Manhattan; it was moved here in 2006.
