STONE PEDESTAL
WITHOUT A STATUE
CENTRAL PARK HOLDS A
MYSTERY MONUMENT.
\Bolivor Memorial, Gift of Venezuela
to Country, Condemned as
Inartistic.
In view of the present strained relations between
Venezuela and the United States, a huge block of
granite, 20 feet high. 15 feet long and 10 feet broad.
standing on the top of a. shaded knoll on the west
side of Central Park, near S3d street, has more
than passing Interest. The stone Is fashioned into
a. pedestal, and. though no statue stands on It. it
attracts a great deal of attention from passersby,
•who stop to wonder whose monument it is, how It
comes to be placed in such an out-of-the-way spot
and what has become of the statue which appar
ently surmounted it is the past.
There Is an inscription on three of the sides of
this huge pedestal, ajid although this inscription
Is incomplete, In that it contains no name, thos«
■who know their South American history are able
to guess In whose honor the monument stands,
after a perusal of the lines on the bronze tablets
fastened to the stone.
On one side of the pedestal is engraved:
ÜBDWTOR OF VENEZUELA. ECUADOR
AND PERU.
AND
POUNDER OK BOLIVIA.
Another side saya:
BORN IN CARACAF. JULT 24TH. 1793.
PIED AT SANTA MARTA I>ESC. KTH. IS3O.
And the third side says in big characters:
Timi'T-* TO THB CITT OF NTTSV
IOBK. 1883.
I
But there are many who are sadly unfamiliar
■with the history of our South American neigh
bors, and to these, of course, the words on the ped
estal furnish no light; therefore, the gray-haired
policeman on post near by is kept busy explain
ing to curious pedestrians that the block of stone
Is part of the statue of the great Simon Bolivar.
But this information only adds to the mystery.
AY.'. at has become of the statue? Is it a case of
lost, strayed or stolen? Why was a gift from a
iriendly power placed in such an obscure spot as
this— one of the last places in Central Park where
one would expect to find a statue?
Bolivar, the Liberator was a great patriot and.
nccording to the inscription on the stone, his coun
try. Venezuela, had sought to honor his memory
and at the same time to pay America a gracious
compliment by presenting his statue in bronze to
>". v: York. Why. then, should New York have
... . ■ so churlish as to bury the gift in this out-of
the-way portion of the park, situated ri_.ht next to
a grave' heap?
The pray-hairc-d patrolman could not give much
Information on these points. All he could say was
that the stone had been there before bis time in
the park. There used to be a large figure of Boli
var on horseback or, it. be remembered, but the
ttatue had been taken down over ten years ago.
He believed that some Venezuelans had removed it.
that there was some talk at the time about the
figure having been inartistic and something said
about another statue being ordered to replace it.
That was ten years ago or more, however, and no
other ligure had been sent, and so there the stone
Ftood. and probably would continue to stand for
Mars to come. The policeman heartily wished that
they would do something about it. and either put
a new statue on the pedestal or take away the big
block cf granite tor— present company exeepted—
be was sick and tired of answering questions about
the "my*UTy monument." as some folks called it.
Th" patrolman suggested a visit to Park Com
missioner Smith, who might be able to supply
tome further details.

A GRAVEL PIT ENHANCES WHAT I S LEFT OF THE BOLIVAR STATUE,
■with the Bolivar statue, or rather all that is left
of It. do you?" he said. "I wish I could tell you,
but I cannot for the reason that I do not know.
That pedestal over near 83d street Is a white ele
phant on my hands. I would like to get rid of It,
for I am a lover of the beautiful and anxious to
make the park as picturesque and artistic as pos
sible. It must be admitted that that statueless
block of stone is not ornamental and disfigures
the landscape there. That Is why we have used
that spot for a gravel heap. But I am afraid to
remove it. In the first place. I can't think of any
other place to put it. It is so bis and unwieldy.
In the second place, I don't think I have the au
thority to do so.
"There is a whole lot of red tape surrounding
the Bolivar statue. All sorts of officials, city,
state and federal, have been mixed up with it.
■ I might be treading on som?'.)ody's corns if I
made any move.
"When I assumed the park commisslonership
and went through the park on my first tour of
Inspection I came across that block of granite and
at once made inquiries about it. 1 was toM
that the statue had been condemned as Inartistic
and removed somewhere around 1537, and that the
President of Venezuela had premised to 'give us
another and finer statue to replace It.
"I understand that by order of 'he Venezuelan
government a new statue was made by a New.
York sculptor in the same year. Our National
Sculpture Society, for whose approval the new
statue was submitted, refused to approve of the
second . attempt, declaring it 10 be inartistic, al
though?an Improvement on the first statue.
This second statue, therefore, never whs pre
sented to the city. The sculptor died two years
afterward, and it was said that his death *vas due
to a broken heart and to grief and chagrin over
the rejection of his work.
"Since that day 1 don't be!i«-v« anything more has
been said or done about the matter. It seems to have
been entirely forgotten. Whether Venezuela still
considers that she owes us a statue to go on that
pedestal, or whether .-he has grown weary of try
ing to introduce Bolivar into New York, 1 don't
know. Perhaps some day a third statue will be
made and presented to the city. I guess we will
have to keep that pedestal on hand until that day
arrives."
From other sources the following facts concern
ing the history of the Bolivar statue were learned:
In ISS." the government of Venezuela, desiring to
h> nor their preat liberator, caused an equestrian
ptntue to be done in his honor, and sent it to New
Ynrk, because it was the empire city of the land
in which the intrepid Bolivar had first conceived
his plans for the liberation of his own country.
STATUE A SUBJECT OF RIDICULE.
When the statue arrived it was determined, after
much red tape had been gone through with, to
place it in "''ntral Park, but when the park com
missioners caught sight of the huge figure on
horseback they were amazed, and found it difficult
to restrain their laughter, for. in their opinion, the
figure was absurdly inartistic.
The big bronze horse, according to one of the
commissioners, was a nvst wondrous creature, and
"seemrd to be largely a matter of mouth, gumps
and varicose veins.** Its rider, the preat Bolivar,

xew-yokk: daily raißuyE, Sunday, july 5, 1908
was made to present a most ludicrous figure, and
held his sword at an angle which was a Joke to
every- swordsman who saw It."
The park commissioners hesitated to put such an
unsightly statue in the beautiful park, but after
consultation with other officials it was decided
that, out of courtesy to Venezuela, room must be
found for It. The park commissioners were crafty
enough, however, to relegate it to the knoll near
83d street, which, in those days, was even a more
obSL'ure and forlorn spot than it is to-day.
For a long time the equestrian statue of Bolivar
stood there, criticised and scorned by all who saw
it. It is said that ingenious nursemaids us. d to
take their youthful charges to the statue and scr'.re
them into obedience .by pointing to the vast dis
tended jaws of the ferocious looking steed.
One day some one made the discovery that the
Iterator's upraised sword was so big that it
would have been o physical impossibility to replace
it In its scabbard.
After that the criticisms of the figure in the
park grew to such an extent that they at length
reached the ears of President Orespo of Venezuela-
He was chagrined ;iad humiliated, ami determined
that this offending statue must be removed at once
and a fitting and irreproachable monument to his
great countryman put in its place.
He Bent for Giovanni Turini. a New York sculptor,
an.) commissioned him to begin work on a new
statue of Bolivar on horseback at a cost of $25,000.
At the State Department at Washington is a let
ter on file, written by the Venezuelan Minister to
Richard Oluey. Secretary of State, reading:
"I am requested to say th&t the government of
Venezuela realizes the fact that the present statue
of Bolivar In Central Park. New York, is one not
at all appropriate to the glory of trie great Lib
erator, and It is the intention of the government to
replace it with a more suitable figure."
But alas: this promise was not fulfilled, although
not through any fault of our sister republic.
Turini began work Industriously on his new sub
ject in his studio on Staten Island. When it was
finished he felt proud of his work. The Garibaldi
statue, in Washington Square. la an evidence of
his art, but. nevertheless when the National Sculpt
ure Society viewed his work, at the request of the
Venezuelan government. In August, 1897, it con
demned it as inartistic. It declared that it was a
great improvement over the original statue, but
nevertheless not quite good enough.
Turini offered to prove that his work was artistic.
He accused the National Sculpture Society of be
ing a trust determined to condemn the work of
all sculptors outside of its organization. For two
years he fought desperately with the society, but
without avail, and then he died. His friends said
his death was due to a broken heart.
And now the huge Bolivar on horseback, which
he designed, rests and corrodes neglected In the
yards of a Long Island bronze works, and Venez
uela has made no further attempt to give America
a bronze Bolivar.
Meanwhile Park Commissioner Smith would very
much like to know what to do with the stone
pedestal that stands on the KM street knoll, and
Which in its present ' condition Is even more in
artistic and an insult t<« the memory of the great
Liberator than either of the two discarded figures.
