The Statue of Liberty Reimagined

     I found this painting at the Jewish Museum on my last visit there. I could not wait until July fourth or Labor day to post this picture. I guess the artist envisioned the statue of liberty as a blond. I love that America is written on her crown in Yiddish. I don't have a lot of snappy commentary. I think that the picture says it all. Would have loved to see a picture of the same five people fifty years later.

Well sadly they'd likely have looked and acted like regular Americans with the occasional wistful recall about their Jewish behaviour in the Old Country. that blonde at the border was quite persuasive

Thank you for the reminder about the Jewish Museum. I went last night after work and it was inspiring. I didn't notice the painting you posted -- there just wasn't enough time before they closed to see everything.
