Strolling down California Avenue, a family stops at the corner to look back. A young boy spies the blue eyes of Go Mama, and exchanges looks with the sculpture. Few children can resist Marta Thoma ’s surreal bronze and resin form, which stands on the corner below the Hotel California. (click the image to enlarge the view to full screen.)
Inscribed around the base is this enigmatic poem by Mary Lee McNeal:
Mi cuento está saltando en tu corazón
The lines circle the base, but could be written (in English):
My lost story
Our lost story
Her lost story
My story is leaping in your heart
Here is a gallery of other photos of Go Mama:
