This 6 foot tall nude sculpture has been halting traffic on the TransCanada Highway in rural PEI since 1974. She’s a right beauty, and sometimes in the spring she wears a grass skirt. As far as I know, she’s one of a kind, at least here on the Island…which is saying somethin’ 😉
Often travel simply serves to “open your mind, til you can’t get your head through the door” (per Elvis Costello)…but this is different.

The recent renovation of London’s Underground involved a total redo at Tottenham Court station where Paolozzi’s 1984 mosaics were located. After much effort, the beautiful colourful mosaics have been restored as part of the new station. Hurray for the London Underground!
