Inscription.  

The Cristiani Family, six brothers and five sisters, presented one of the greatest equestrian or bareback riding acts ever seen in the circus. In addition to their thrilling feats of horsemanship they were gifted in a wide variety of circus skills. After many years with the Ringling and other shows, they operated their own Cristiani Bros. Circus.
