The large statue atop the Municipal Building (Civic Virtue c. 1915) in New York is second in size only to that of the Statue Of Liberty in all of NYC.
I have done a bit of gold leaf in the past and when I look at an enormous thing like that covered in leaf I feel a sense of awe.
And frankly, wow what a lot of work that must have been.
This little painting is bright and colorful incorporating only the very finest materials available.
Please enjoy more on the Manhattan Municipal Building !
Or more on NYC in general.
