TITLE: Leaping Gazelle
ARTIST: Marshall M. Fredericks
ABOUT: In 1936, Fredericks won a National Award Competition to design a fountain for the Levi L. Barbour Memorial, located on Belle Isle, an island park in Detroit, Michigan. Mounted 16 feet high on a granite pedestal, the bronze sculpture sits in a fountain basin. Four small carved granite animals surround the gazelle.
Leaping Gazelle is the first commission Fredericks received and it initiated his career as a distinguished public sculptor.
