Artist's Description

Alligator Bender by Nathaniel Choate, b. 1899. Italian Marble. A man is seated on the back of an alligator, his legs gathered under him. With his left hand he grasps the jaw, and his right arm curves around the tail, bending the creature’s body in a circle. His powerful muscles are contracted, and the radiating lines of the arms and legs are contrasted with the curving frame of the alligator. Originally carved in mahogany in New York in 1926. In enlarging it, the sculptor made it heavier and the man more robust. He carved it in marble in 1937. Located at the Reflecting Pool.

Sculpture found in Brookgreen Gardens in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina.
