Bjorn Skaarup, Hippo Ballerina

This whimsical outdoor sculpture near Lincoln Center is the brainchild of Danish artist Bjørn Okholm Skaarup, who found inspiration for his 15-foot-high bronze creation in an unlikely combination of sources: The character Hyacinth Hippo from the Disney film, Fantasia and the Little Dancer Aged Fourteen by Impressionist master Edgar Degas. Dante Park, W 63rd St between Columbus Ave and Broadway, (212-639-9675, nycgovparks.org/parks/M020/). Through July 31.
