"Pied Piper of Hamelin"
Two one-foot square cast-aluminum plates, depicting the “Pied Piper of Hamelin,” were produced by Domenico Mortellito in 1936 and installed in the Small Mammal House at the National Zoo.
These pieces were commissioned and paid for by the Treasury Relief Art Project (TRAP), which gave work to unemployed artists in the Depression.
