Humility of Man Before A Group of Ageless Animals

— ASPCA Sculpture —

Humility of Man Before A Group of Ageless Animals, by Wilhelm Hunt Diederich (1884-1953) and John Terken (1912-1993)—This bas-relief, a tribute to the bond between man and animals, was given by it renowned artists to the ASPCA circa 1953 and hung on its Manhattan headquarters until 1992. Generations of New Yorkers viewed this iconic sculpture while passing the ASPCA Headquarters along FDR Drive at 92nd Street. In 2006, this sculpture was installed at Green-Wood, below the grave of Henry Bergh, founder and first president of the ASPCA, in his honor and in celebration of the 140th Anniversary of the founding of the ASPCA, the first humane organization in the Americas. It will remain here on permanent loan, inspiring kindness and compassion for all living things.
