Andy Warhol Monument, Union Square, NYC

The statue, lifesize, is made from highly polished aluminum, its pedestal is only a few feet above the ground. It catches the sun like a mirror, It has a curious effect on the people, they constantly touch its feet with reverence, nobody does not look upon it.
But after a while I realize they are just checking it is not a street artist, painted silver and pretending to be a statue. I quietly weep for Andy.
