Le Carrousel in Bryant Park


The word "carousel" has been traced to twelfth-century Arabian games of horsemanship called "carosellos" or "little wars." The game consisted of riders tossing a small perfumed clay ball from one rider to another. By the 16th century these games spread to France where the events were elaborated; people wore fanciful costumes and engaged in tournaments of drama called "Carrousels." Eventually the art form became more tactile, as artists began to sculpt crudely shaped horses. In the late nineteenth century American artists broke from European tradition. To the dashing horses, artists added an entire menagerie of elegant animals, often accompanied by flowers, bells, plump cherubs, and flashing mirrors.
Le Carrousel in Bryant Park, specially created to complement the park's French classical style, is an homage to both European and American traditions. Its fourteen delightful animals, replicas of classic carousel creatures, revolve to the sounds of French cabaret music. The rounding boards, inspired by Bryant Park's elegant baroque-style torchères along 40th Street, blend into the leafy canopy of the park's plane trees.

Un encanto de imagen amiga Rebeca. La niña montada en el caballito nos hace recordar los tiempos de la infancia, pero muy de infancia, en la cual los caballitos eran la mas importante, la mas sugerente atracción de lo que en España denominamos tiovivos. Gran foto. Mis felicitaciones. Eduardo.
