Dancing Goat

Dancing Goat

Dancing Goat is caught mid-frolic, prancing joyfully on two hind legs. Water sprays from five tiny ducks found at the goat’s dancing feet, located in the Central Park Zoo.

Dancing Goat was created by renowned animal sculptor and Brooklyn native Frederick George Richard Roth. Its partner in whimsy, Honey Bear, is found in a niche on the other side of the Central Park Zoo. Both were cast at Roman Bronze Works in Brooklyn, installed in 1937, and serve as the centerpieces of decorative fountains.

Roth is responsible for several of the Park’s most delightful sculptures, including the heroic Balto, Mother Goose, and the Alice in Wonderland etchings at the Sophie Loeb Fountain.
