Painted Steel

I have a dear sister who lives in Manhattan.


LADY LIBERTY is built on a steel  armature similar to mine. My Lady stands on a storm sewer cover, "Give me your tempest tossed...". MANHATTAN SKYLINE outlines a skyscraper above a wrought iron decorative fence, while MANHATTAN WINDOW stands over a fire escape landing. Looking over the city is the VIEWING TELESCOPE. Most of these pieces are placed on sewer grates or covers and several have sewer cover opener hooks.
