Back in September 2015, I was walking along 9th Ave in Midtown when I saw this gorgeous goddess outside of Casa di Isacco.
I’d passed by the restaurant a couple of times, but I never realized there was a sculpture sitting in that sidewalk vineyard. The sculpture looks like a depiction of Greek/Roman goddess Hebe/Juventus, but I’m not entirely sure.
Doesn’t this photo make you wish it was still autumn in NYC? Gosh, this snow needs to melt. STAT.
Learn more about the goddess Hebe on Wikipedia.
It’s such a nice day out in New York, especially for what’s supposed to be 93 degree weather, so Gallery Mondays is headed to the outdoors this week.
I found this lovely goddess on Beford and N 8th in Brooklyn about two months ago. She’s holding Pabst Blue Ribbon beers in three of her four arms, and I think she’s holding a fourth with her foot.
I’m not sure if it’s accurate to call her a Pabst goddess because here she is again here sans the Pabst.
The mural was done by Cernesto, who paints a lot of murals with this pinkish-purple aura. After looking him up online I kind of want to go find all of the murals he’s painted in the U.S. and abroad.
