Nude Goddess in JP

Seated Ceres statueThe secret animist who had protected the naked goddess of the harvest in the Forest Hills Cemetery must have moved on. The Kahlil Gibran statue Seated Ceres has often gotten a scarf in cold weather of recent years…not so yesterday.

The afternoon before the Pat’s game was odd in many ways. At the burying ground/park it was particularly so for the heavy fog. At the lowland near the caretaker’s house, someone could have filmed a horror movie. The stone buildings, iron fencing and unpopulated grounds were in a smothering fluff.

It was not quite so opaque at Lake Hibiscus in the middle of the grounds. However, click on the image to get a sense of the heavy mists.

For Ceres, the white air with the snowy lawn and iced pond surface made the statue look all the worse equipped. I may have to take over the scarf duty.
