One of several “Life Underground” bronze sculptures by Tom Otterness at the 14th Street-Eighth Avenue subway station in New York City. This one appears to show a female sewer worker holding a manhole cover and a supervisor.

“Clan” by Primal Visions, 2005.
Expertly glazed stoneware coyote figure with running coyotes painted on the side. The top glaze is a mustard color that blends into sky blue on the lower body and black on the belly, tail tip, and feet. There are other tribal symbols on the body, such as hunters, a breath path, and a bear claw. I should show the whole thing when I get the time. I’d say it’s the best piece in my collection. Photographed as a high dynamic range macro for this week’s FlickrFriday and Macro Mondays challenges on Flickr.
