The Pygmalion Syndrome - Art & Stuff

United A Trip to Diana
Louis M. Glackens, Puck Magazine, 1910

Here’s something I found on the Library of Congress website and digitally spruced
up for your viewing pleasure. A drunken gentleman leans out of a “taxiplane” and
attempts to abduct the bronze rooftop statue of the goddess Diana (the one on
the old Madison Square Gardens). I love how the statue looks as if
she’s aware of what’s happening and can’t move to stop it.
