Looff, one of the earliest and foremost carousel designers. The Crescent Park Carousel is nationally recognized for its wood sculpture. Originally built as a showcase for prospective buyers, it is the largest and most elaborate of Looff's works. The Carousel contains 62 hand-carved figures and four fanciful chariots. Elaborate embellishments of decorative panels, beveled mirrors, faceted glass jewels, electric lights, colored sandwich glass windows and its original band organ music surround flying steeds to create Looff's "Total Carousel Experience."
