In Eakins Oval a mounted George Washington is poised to lead a march down the Parkway. Allegorical figures surround his pedestal, while the lower levels portray “typical” American people and animals.

Across the Parkway, Auguste Kiss’s Mounted Amazon Attacked by a Panther and Albert Wolff’s The Lion Fighter flank the famous steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
