    What a unique statue. Te dangly limbs and post tail reminds me of myself when I was growing up.

    Thank you so much for linking up with Esha and yours truly for our #WW linky party,

    That statue captures the teen years, I think. That’s exactly what happened to me at thirteen.

      might as well. sculptor eran shakhine said it’s dedicated “to young people who live in a contemporary city while keeping their human values, in a fast-changing world of technology.”

    That’s a lovely one and reminds me of the one I saw in NY. The one that is under so many controversies too.
    Great entry!

      the one you saw could be from the same sculptor eran shakine who uses art to make a political statement.

            The Fearless Girl is a bronze sculpture by Kristen Visbal, commissioned by State Street Global Advisors via McCann New York.

              i haven’t seen it. it must have come into existence after 2008 which was the last time i was in new york. 🙂
