Alma Mater Statue Details Description:
The Alma Mater statue sits on the steps of the Low Memorial Library on the campus of Columbia University in the Morningside Heights neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City. The statue was designed by the French in 1901 and installed in September 1903. It is the embodiment of the Alma mater and represents Colombia’s role as an educational institution. Since its installation, the statue has been closely associated with the image of the university. Alma maters have been at the center of many protests in Colombia, given their symbolic association with universities. During the 1970 student protests against the Cambodia Movement and the Kent State shootings, the statue represented the failures of the university administration, which included the continued gentrification of the Morningside Heights neighborhood. In the early hours of May 15, 1970, a bomb was placed on the statue. The resulting explosion caused significant damage to the throne of the Alma mater. The damage continued until 1978 when the statue was removed from Columbia, the throne was recast, the sculpture was cleaned, repainted with a new patina, and returned to the lower order. Recently, the New York Times called the Alma mater Columbia’s “old lady” who “reigns with queenly splendor in front of the low library.” The AIA New York City guide describes it as an “evocative statue” in which “the enthroned figure reaches out to welcome her, and she looks up from the powerful intellectual tome that lies on her lap.” In particular, the Alma mater’s location in front of the Low Library was praised for its role in welcoming students to the university and emphasizing the university’s relationship with New York City. This university statue is perfect for the public square. Aongking also has more famous sculptures besides this Alma Mater statue, if you are interested in it, welcome to contact Aongking.
