There’s a statue in the living room

November 30, 2012

Cristoforo, is that you?

Japanese artist Tatzu Nishi has re-imagined the Columbus Circle statue as the centerpiece of a living room. Visitors climb stairs to reach the installation seventy-five feet in the air. The 13-foot-tall marble statue of Christopher Columbus dominates the tasteful living room (with funky pop art wallpaper); windows and magnificent views remind the crowd where they are. The piece is only up through this weekend.
