Description

This sculpture was originally commissioned for the San Francisco jeweler Shreve and Company. After it sculpture survived a fire in Shreve’s showroom caused by the 1906 earthquake, it was donated to the city and dedicated here in 1906.

The red stone beneath the bronze sculpture was donated by masonry contractor John D. McGilvray, whose business (McGilvray-Raymond Granite Company) helped build San Francisco buildings like City Hall, the Public Library and the State Building.

Location

Just north of the de Young Museum, near the intersection of Hagiwara Tea Garden Drive and Bowl Drive in the north-west corner of Golden Gate Park's Music Concourse
