say ahhhh
What can I say? I’m a sucker for sidewalk kitsch — especially when it presents itself overflowingly, in cartoony-lion statue form. As usual, an embiggened version of the super-widemouthed jungle cats is on Flickr.

The sidewalk in question is on 24th Street here in Manhattan, between 6th and 7th Avenues (in Chelsea). The store in question is Olde Good Things, an antique/furnishings store that bills itself as “the place of the architecturologists”. Which, I’m sorry, I can’t help but read as “architect urologists”…

As I walk by these statue stores, I often wonder just who buys these oddities. Somebody must be doing so, right? That, or else they’re being traded from store to store endlessly.
