This sculpture by Francesco Somaini has caught my eye recently when attending performances at New York City Ballet. It stands in the corridor leading to the left-side orchestra level seating. The bronze, dating from 1960, is entitled Large Bleeding Martyr.
Closer view. It's odd how we walk by these works so often here in New York City without stopping to ponder. Since I began going about with my friend Kokyat I have been trying to make a more conscious effort to observe such things in my City...like this, which I must have passed by countless times.
