The Tortoise and the Hare was created by Nancy Quiny Schon in 1994 and installed in Copley Square, at Boylston Street and Darmouth Street, in May 1995. The 2-piece larger than life silicone bronze sculptures depicting the popular Aesop's Fable stands near the finish line for the Boston Marathon, in tribute to the runners from all over the world who have participated in the famous race.
