This statue was originally located along the tour train route, in front of the Friendship Pond. It was knocked off of its pedestal in the mid-1990's by hooligan actors with the Haunted Forest (see photo below) and moved to a new location behind the Renaissance Garden. The first stanza of the poem The World's Needs by Ella Wheeler Wilcox, engraved in the pedestal, reads:
So many gods
So many creeds,
So many paths that wind and wind
While just the art of being kind
is all this sad world needs.
