Arty Tuesday: Alferez Fountain of the Winds

I decided to continue my local theme with art deco sculpture, Enrique Alferez. His most controversial pieces is the Fountain of the Winds..imagine the shock of an 8 foot “well endowed” nude Boreas (North Wind) in 1936. Thank goodness for Eleanor Roosevelt stepping in.

Here’s a photo from the Enrique Alferez studio webpage:
