Goddess of the potted plants

This is a sculpture in front of a used furniture store on Grant Road in Tucson (Grant & Sparkman). I remember back in the 1980's when this building and the plant goddess in front were part of a nice restaurant. Good memories.
There are trees somewhat blocking the view of her from passing cars on Grant Road -- I wonder how many people know she is still holding her own...

The building appears to be up for sale, I hope someone figures out a way to keep or save her.


  1. Very bad Feng Shui she is staring at empty bowls. I hope the new owners either fill her bowls with fake gold coins or with plants whose leaves resemble coins-nothing sharp or pointy.

    PS love the cat pic below-excellent! :)

  2. pps and she should also not be blocking the main entrance-she should be placed on the side. But she is cool.

  3. tree ocean -- thanks for the comment!

    I'm not so sure she is looking at empty bowls: she could be watching a seed or a fresh sprout that we can't see from this perspective... I've seen little prickly pear cacti growing in the crook of saguaro arms... I agree it would be nice to be able to see a plant from where I'm standing.

    She's not really in front of a door, it just kind of looks that way -- the actual door is out of the picture to the left, and the main entrance is on the other side of the building.

    Glad you like the cat pic!
