This statue of Simon Bolivar, a gift of the Venezuelan government by R. de la Cora, was dedicated in June 1884. The sculpture was thought to be something of a faliure and was removed to a less prominant area of the park by 1898. It was finally replaced by Sally Jane Farnham's sculture of Bolivar in 1921.
