Hung Yi's 'Carnival of Animals' at the Civic Center


Eagle Dove of Peace and Buffalo. I don't think I've ever seen our "national bird" portrayed in such a manner but you've got to admit it's unique. The Buffalo. red eyes and all,  represents Tiawanese spirit.
Michelangelo's David it's not but then, SF is not Renaissance Florence. I thought that the animals were fun and people seemed to enjoy them. Kids were climbing all over the sculptures while their parents ignored the "do not ... " signs. But the animals look pretty sturdy and they will only be there for another week or two. It's a goofy, colorful and charming addition to a part of the city that is often overrun with the homeless.
