NYC Scares Children Again

Going out for my afternoon run, and I was creeped out by one one of the most disturbing pieces of Art that I have seen-- ever. And it is right here in our backyard in Battery Park City.

Granted I don't have a degree in Art History, however, could someone please explain this sculpture to me?

Is there significance of a dancing bear and monkey that I should understand? Is this inter-species romance symbolic of something?

Bears do not dance with monkeys. They eat them.

Isn't it a reference to a childhood fable? Can't remember which one...

Hah! I read your blog this morning, and now look at this article... Apparently, Battery Park City is the only place where bears and monkeys can live harmoniously!
