Gallery Mondays: Puck


Back in September, I was walking through NoLIta after buying tickets for a show at Mercury Lounge when I saw this golden statue on the Puck Building, known as the home of retail store REI.

When I first saw the statue, which is one of Shakespeare’s characters named Puck (hence the name of the building), I thought he was a cherub. Now I’m realizing that if he has wings, they’re not really visible. Would he even qualify as a fairy?

Do fairies need to have wings to be fairies?

Anyway, I do like that little tophat Puck has in this statue. I wonder if all of the building’s Puck statues are holding the same pose.

I guess I’ll have to go back there one day to have a look.
