Behind the wonderful Tom Otterness sculpture of a tree-frog mom, is someone else’s artistic attempt.
I’m pretty sure it’s the same person who dyed this schoolyard’s snow bright colors in 2003.

A tiny Tom Otterness cop looks down over the elevator entrance to the Eighth Avenue subway at 14th Street.
Otterness sculptures completely dominate that station. It is well worth the $2 admission.

Tiny people populate the Fourteenth Street, Eighth Ave subway station. Tom Otterness is the artist, they are subtly subversive and cute.

Tom Otterness on Broadway
Tuesday, November 23rd, 2004
| Tom Otterness on Broadway originally scheduled to end yesterday, has been extended until March 15. Cartoons in the round, absurdly substantial in bronze, they have an imposing presence, blending the impossibly cute with dark undercurrent seasoning. It’s worth the hike up Broadway from Columbus Circle to 168th Street, and car dodging to the traffic islands where they reside.
Kindly Geppetto – 95th and Broadway. This is the darkest. I should have shot from an angle showing the huge mallet Geppetto is wielding on the puppet. Banging some sense into the poor lad, I guess.
