Theodore Roosevelt and his horse’s rear-end

© Harold Davis

I always thought this statue was pompous beyond belief, and patronizing to the subservient folks below and to either side of T.R. Which is why I photographed this trite and hackneyed representation of neo-colonialism from the back, or horse’s donkey, circa 1980.

In case you don’t know, it is beside the front entrance to the Natural History Museum in New York City, and will be taken down. About time, I say!

    Harold, you are indeed a treat. I first realized that from your answer to my question about the button you wore at the transparency class a couple of years ago. And now this. LMAO!

    And you see what good ITMFA did us? Wish I could LMAO, but crying is more like it. Very best wishes, Harold
