Medusa Statue, Collect Pond Park, NYC

A naked sculpture of Medusa carrying the head of her male victim is New York City's newest attraction. The statue of the mythological figure is located outside criminal court in Lower Manhanttan. The work of artist Luciano Garbati stands seven foot tall.  Medusa, with snakes as her hair, is brandishing a giant sword in one hand and the head of Perseus in the other. The artist chose the site to honor the #MeToo movement and is located across the street from Harvey Weinstein's criminal trial.
