Sanrio Sculpture Sightings

When I was in Manhattan the other week, I had serendipitously stumbled upon these giant Sanrio sculptures at East 53rd St., right when I had emerged from the E/V subway station with the belated and unfortunate realization that I had left my umbrella at the hotel.

A pale Hello Kitty was waving at me. This one is actually a wind-up robot sculpture, as evidenced by this side view I had shot from my celfone.

I immediately welcomed this kawaii distraction and at the same time wondered what these strange creatures of cuteness were doing here outside the Lever House. I only found out now that they're actually art installations by Tom Sachs, and that they were made of bronze but painted white.

Here are Hello Kitty's other cute companions:

"My Melody"


Hello Kitty again as a fountain.

If you love Hello Kitty, then don't just stop by the Sanrio Luxe Store on 42nd St., see these amazing sculptures on East 53rd St. as well! (Take the E or V train) They're only there until September 6th!

This just goes to show that Hello Kitty is larger than life...that is, all of her nine lives combined!
