Stanton and Clinton Streets on the Lower east side, a completely ordinary building for this neighborhood. Something about one of the terracotta decorations caught my eye. I didn’t know what it was, it seemed a bit ugly, but looking at it closely it seems horrifying.
I don’t know what the artist’s intentions were but to me it looks like a drowning baby trapped under the debris of a sinking ship about to be eaten by fishes. Your interpretations may vary.
