NYC Sculpture- A WHAT?

by Cathrine Stewart July. 28, 2008 6121 views

My husband and I were driving though NYC, when suddenly I saw this, I took a picture as fast as I could. It helps to keep one's camera on at all times in the city. hahah…

You will have to look very close to see what this sculpture is. If anyone knows its name I am interested.

Answer from Curlyq60

First of all, it is in front of Jerome L. Green Hall, Columbia Law School Building……..
this Statue is Bellerophon Taming Pegasus, winged Horse of the Gods. Greek Hero in slayer of monsters before Hercules. It symbolizes triumph of man over nature.

Thank you Curlyq!
