"Designed by English-born architect Jacob Wrey Mould in the mid-1800’s, this carving can be found on the Bethesda Terrace (overlooking Bethesda Fountain) in New York’s Central Park. "Mould chose representative wildlife and seasonal design motifs. There are also carvings symbolic of day: a rising sun, a crowing cock. Night is represented by a lamp and book, a bat and owl, and a witch flying over a Jack-o’-lantern."
