Circle of Animals / Zodiac Heads, an outdoor sculptural exhibition by Chinese sculptor Ai Weiwei (艾未未), was on exhibit at the Pulitzer Fountain at Grand Army Plaza in Central Park from May 2 to July 15, 2011. Weiwei reinterpreted the twelve bronze animal heads representing the traditional Chinese zodiac that once adorned the famed fountain-clock, designed in the 18th century by two European Jesuits serving in the court of the Qing dynasty Emperor Qianlong, that was ited in the European-style gardens of the Yuanming Yuan, an imperial retreat in Beijing. In 1860, the Yuanming Yuan was ransacked by French and British troops, and the heads were pillaged.

The exhibition earned notoriety for events beyond the art realm. Weiwei is an outspoken political activist who has been highly and critical of the Chinese Government's stance on democracy and human rights. Following an arrest at Beijing airport on April 3, he was held for over two months, through the exhibition's opening, without any official charges being filed. Allegations were made about "economic crimes", but ultimately he was released on June 22.
