So many icons come together here for one mural near the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn.


Pieces of NYC 20: Hippo Ballerina

pieces of nyc 0020_pieces

This lovely hippo resides in Dante Park across from Lincoln Center.  An article on Smithsonian explains that she is “part of an art installation by Danish sculptor Bjørn Okholm Skaarup. Skaarup specializes in bronze sculptures of animals—what he calls a “contemporary bestiary” of intricate creatures with tight connections to human culture.”

I like her, but then again, I like hippos.
