In 1959, George Delacorte, a philanthropist, donated this bronze statue to Central Park. It is not exactly the tea party scene.  It is called “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.” The sculptor is Spanish born American artist José deCreeft.

Here are a couple of quotes from Lewis Carroll’s great work (1865):

“But I don’t want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked.

“Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat: “we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.”

“How do you know I’m mad?” said Alice.

“You must be,” said the Cat, “or you wouldn’t have come here.”

AND:

“If you don’t know where you are going, any road can take you there.”

 

Below is a quote from centralpark.com:

—–* “The design for the bronze sculpture was patterned after the original illustrations of John Tenniel that were used in the first published edition of the book. The obvious centerpiece of the work, Alice, who depicts the face of Creeft’s daughter, Donna, is pictured sitting on a giant mushroom reaching toward a pocket watch held by the White Rabbit.

Peering over her shoulder is the Cheshire Cat, surrounded by the Dormouse, Alice’s cat Dinah, and the Mad Hatter — a caricature of George Delacorte. ”  (Central park.com)
