When the sun came out (hallelujah!) for a few moments this afternoon, I was able to get a better shot of “The Falconer” statue at Lynch Park.
Commissioned by the Evans family in the 1920’s, it is a replica of the original “Falconer” in New York’s Central Park, which was in sight of Mr. Evans’ window as he lay sick in a New York hospital.
The statue, depicting a young boy dressed in Elizabethan-style clothing releasing a falcon from his left hand, stands guard over the sunken Italian rose garden.
Now, don’t we all feel smarter?
