Bas Relief Rhino and Water Buffalo in NYC

New York ~ May 5, 2009

It's going to take three photos to show this beautiful bas relief on the outside of the Natural History Museum in New York City. I've already shown the horse statue in another post, although it was a silhouette.

I don't know why I didn't wait and take a better photo without the car, but this may have been a drive-by through the bus window.

This beautiful, naturalistic bas relief carving of two water buffalo and a long-horned rhino adds much to the facade of the museum.

Another place I must visit. Thanks for these photos. I, too, love those bas relief carvings...they are simply elegant!
