With each turn of the merry-go-round, the hurdling horses, frolicking frogs, and gallivanting goats leap across the landscape. These remarkable figures were created by highly skilled master wood carvers who emigrated from Europe. Upon arriving overseas, these craftsmen used their talents to create masterpieces using the medium of the carousel figure. Carousel Animals reveals the artistic visions and extraordinary abilities of such master carvers as Charles Carmel, John Zalar and David Muller in over 100 photographs of spectacularly detailed carousel animals, created between 1880 and 1930. Whether you are a collector, preservationist, or just someone with memories of whirling about on a merry-go-round, Carousel Animals will transport you through a rich and colourful history of a wondrous art.
