New York City is a place that doesn’t miss big architectural and decorative sculptures. This time a 30-foot-tall dalmatian dog that balances a yellow taxi with its nose popped up in front of NYU Langone Helen L. and Martin S. Kimmel Pavilion. The sculpture was created by artist Donald Lipski and it is called Spot!. It was made using fiberglass and steel and its purpose is to offer a nice and warm welcome to the patients that will be visiting the hospital.

If a dog can hold a taxi with its nose, then anyone can overcome any kind of health problem.

Lipski wanted this piece to be all about toys and play

This is his way to thank the Hassenfled family, which was a huge donor in the creation of the hospital.

The taxi is an actual Toyora Prius donated by the car manufacturer itself.

Unlike museum and art galleries’ pieces, street art is seen by thousands if not millions of people and is infiltrated in their everyday lives and in many cases inspired them to break their boundaries and fight for whatever they have to fight.
