The gloomy colors of rainy weather made this sculpture to stand out even more.
This is White Ghost by Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara. The Ghost has found its temporarily home on Park Avenue and 67th street. There is another one on Park and 70th 
The locations are not accidental – there is Yoshitomo Nara’s retrospective at the Asia Society  (Park and 70th) and the open studio residency of the artist at the Park Avenue Armory at the 67th street. While in New York, you can also see his work in the MOMA museum.


  1. Even in the rain? The rain makes everything even more beautiful!

  2. Looks as if it is waiting for someone.

  3. MIKE,
    Thank you for stopping by my blog. So, you are a weather guru? I checked your blog:). I wonder what is your favorite weather then!

    I too, love the rain! It does give everything a sort of elegant feel. Of course most of the people do not agree with me on this.

    Yes, the Ghost has this unsettled feel about it.
    However, my reaction when I saw it for the first time, was: "Ah, how fun it would be if it was made of ice-cream!"
