Inscription
These four sculptures were donated by art collector Henry Walters for the interior of the park facing the Washington Monument. The statuaries, made by French sculptor Antoine-Louis Barye, depict a man and a boy accompanied by various animals. The sculptures were commissioned originally as six scenes to showcase the American Ideals set forth by our founding fathers. War, Peace, Force and Order symbolize the foundation on which this country was built. Freedom and Equality, the remaining two depictions, were broken in the casting process and discarded.
