Alice in Wonderland bronze sculpture by Jose de Creeft in Central Park New York. Detail of the Mad Hatter.

The "Alice in Wonderland" statue is a bronze sculpted by Jose de Creeft and was unveiled in 1959. Alice is sitting on a large mushroom surrounded by Lewis Carroll characters- the Mad Hatter, the White Rabbit, the Cheshire Cat, the Caterpillar, the March Hare, the Dormouse and Alice's kitten, Dinah. The Mad Hatter is said to be a caricature of George Delacorte who donated the work in memory of his wife Margarita.De Creeft included lines from Jabberwocky, Margarita's favourite poem in a granite circle around the statue. The book's drawings were originally by John Tenniel and de Creeft partly used them to model the face of Alice. This eleven foot and much clambered upon statue is situated near Conservatory Water and is beautiful. There is another statue in Central Park of Alice in Wonderland by George Frederick Richard Roth in the James Michael Levin Playground.
