Marshal Fredericks and his Leaping Gazelle

Leaping Gazelle was Marshall Frederick's first commissioned work. Sculpted in 1935 it is also one of his most duplicated. In addition to the two we've seen, in the Dow Gardens in Midland, Michigan and in Grand Rapids at the Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park, copies can be found in Detroit, Michigan, West Palm Beach, Florida, and Pawley's Island, South Carolina.
