20 foot tall Virgin Mary

20 foot Virgin Mary

Believe it or not, this Virgin Mary is 20 feet tall. It overlooks Anaheim St. and Neptune Ave. in Wilmington. See the example below. It’s huge, but only one of many in the area, most are much smaller.

I don’t get it. It’s not art, at least I don’t think it is art. It is not pleasing to look at. Or is it? And why the roses? Hundreds of roses all around the building. It covers the graffiti well, that must be it. Or, maybe not. One never knows when it comes to religious icons.
