Art in New York City – Good Defeats Evil

       I certainly don’t consider myself an aficionado of art – to the contrary, I often find visits to art displays to be an intrusion on my time.  However, I do appreciate good works of art – whether drawing, sculpture, music, or even writing – particularly if the piece offers something unique. 

       Such is the case with Good Defeats Evil, a sculpture by Russian artist Zurab Tsereteli on the grounds of the United Nations.  This piece depicts St. George (“Good”) on a rearing horse, slaying a dragon (“Evil”) with a huge spear.  “So what?” you may ask…what’s so special about that?

       What makes the work special, in my mind, are the facts that it was a gift from the (former) Soviet Union to the United Nations in 1990, and that the sculpture was made from recycled weapons – sections of scrapped American and Soviet missiles.  It’s certainly worth a visit, as is Tsereteli’s  Tear of Grief, across the Hudson River in Bayonne, New Jersey; I’ll write about that one later this week…
