this wonderful post from BagNewNotes, one of my favorite blogs, I guess I was struck by the absurdity of it all.
I know that some women get arrested or shunned for breast feeding in the States and when you think about it, that sure says a mouthful about what a bizarre culture we have created. I mean between our obsession with breasts, boob jobs, side boob shots, clothing malfunctions, etc., it is hard to comprehend why one of the most natural things in the world is somehow verboten.
What I love about this statue, besides it very existence, is the look on the mother's face, almost Pieta-like, and how her hand lovingly cups the butt of the other child.
I did go back for some additional shots. It is sad, but it is almost impossible to get into the little park which I am sure used to be a popular and clean green space. I had to jump a couple of small walls, but it was worth it just to be able to get up close and personal.
