Directions

If you are driving on Southhampton towards baddock road. You will cross a 4 way stop at Yorkshire. It's approx the 4th house on the right (a one story ranch)on Southhampton.

The Madonna is in the back yard, but it is to tall you will have no problem seeing it from the road.

I like it.

I live in Kings Park a few blocks from this eyesore.
According to the latest Kings Park newsletter that is distributed to the residents, this is called "Mother's Love." Also stated in this newsletter "a county inspector visited, inspected the statue and was impressed by it. As the statue is art and not a building, there are no restrictions on it like there are when you construct a shed in your yard."

So I guess that means the neighbors who live next door and in the vacinity of it can't do anything about their declining property values since this eyesore is regarded as "art" by the county. By the way, the "artist" who made it would like to sell it, he calls it "Mom"

I definitely think it is art. I guess it is exempt under First Amendment Rights. I think it is very cool, especially when it is juxtaposed with the surrounding houses. But I would absolutely hate to have to live next to it.

Kind of reminds me of this...

It's not art when it's in a neighborhood, it's a f-ing eyesore! Hey WashingTone-Locianm, notice the location in the pictures you posted, the "art" is not located in a neighborhood, it looks like a designated place for it.

"Mom" is three stories high and towers over all the homes. It's so nice to go sit in your backyard and lookover and see this piece of crap towering over you and your yard. Hopefully it will just fall down since it doesn't look like it's very secure and that will be the end of it.

It's probably painted. I would guess some kind of plaster with a wood frame inside maybe? I doubt it's made of metal.

It's not exactly Our Lady of Lourdes, but Catholic pilgrims show up on the doorstep of a Virginia artist because they want to pray at the foot of a 30-foot tall statue in his backyard that they say resembles the Virgin Mary.

Michael Meredith can't say he wasn't looking for attention when he unveiled the gold-leaf Statue of Motherhood on his Springfield, Va. property last year, but he didn't expect worshippers to treat it like a holy shrine either.

"That's not a statue of the Virgin Mary," Meredith, 56, told AOL Weird News. "I wanted to give people a symbol of love. It's a pregnant woman and you don't find much stronger love than a mother's love."

But the devout travel long distances from Texas, Minnesota and Arkansas for a chance to spend a few moments with the apparent Blessed Mother -- only to be shot down by Meredith's wife Erika if they ask to express their faith.

She said it's become her unofficial responsibility to greet the visitors, because her husband is shy. She grants permission to enter the suburban backyard and to snap photographs, but refuses to allow people to pray.

"I'm not a church. It's not for praying. It's not a cure for cancer," she said. "I'm a sociable person, but I do discourage people who come here to pray."

The largest contingent that Erika faced was a posse of 10 pilgrims who she refused to let drop down on their knees.

Common courtesy and decency would probably tell most that building a 20+ ft tall statue behind your little ass house in your densely populated neighborhood with little ass yards is not being considerate to your neighbors.

I'm all for art, and all for artistic creativity, I'm an artist, but good god man, have some consideration for others.

I'm a music producer by trade. My creativity comes through in a form that could annoy the shit out of others quite easily. I'd LOVE to be able to sit out on my deck when it's nice and work on music all day long but not everyone else enjoys listening to the same 3 min peice of music for 6 hours straight.

Out of consideration to others I built a fully soundproofed studio in my basement so that I can wallow all day long in my self-absorbed creativity without bothering anyone else.

You should too.

Just because the County can't or won't do anything about it, doesn't mean that the neighborhood can't do anything about it. Just file various civil suits against the owners of the statue.

Rubs you raw
The shortest Straw has been pulled for you.

Tear down this angel of death
In the dead of night pull the ropes tight
Winch the bitch down so all will her see no more.
Fire bomb her golden ass.

Scorched earth policy is a military strategy
Send this ning ning a message. Destroy without destruction
She stands as a Monitor to the gates into the kingdom of the dead
Preying on the screams of this giant gold mutant he has created

This is the sort of comment that one would expect coming from a populace quite nearly ignorant about art.

Seems to me that you have little need for the truth ( at least, it would have been very easy for you to ask the guy who made it, myself),,,,,which is, that most people like the statue,,,,,,, that i never intended to leave it there, but instead have spent $1000 and a lot of time trying to sell copies ( I even tried to give it away to ffx co., but they were afraid of vandalism),,,and that we live in a country that includes in its educational system those who are called "Great", simply because they went into other countries murdering, raping, and butching people, but very little about the artists and philosophers who have made the true cultural advancements for us. That is one of the reasons that people around the word tend to regard Americans as culturally ignorant. The average American man looks at mowing the lawn as fine landscaping, barbequing as fine cuisine, and the sunday football game as fine art( accompanied by a bud, for a fine beverage).Further, if this person will make the grand leap into music, he will go for the guitar, since that is not gay, the way all of the other arts are.......even martial artists cant understand why an athlete would study ballet.

Actually, my son says that he would like to come on over and talk to anyone who would threaten us this way. So, if you are the brave man you represent yourself to be, and not just another cowardly internet troll, give me your name and address. You already have mine, i am not hiding behind fear.

I bet you, *artist,* if someone kept their dog barking next door to you for hours at a time that you wouldn't put up with it. Just because you are an *artist* does not give you the authority to disrupt your neighbor's few hours of peace and tranquility on their decks, does it? And for your wife to disallow people getting on their knees or showing their faith...who does she think she is? The madonna? Oh, wait, never mind that one. You took care of that. Maybe God will strike down your *art* ...we can only hope.

If we are "culturally different" as you ascertain, why don't you move to France?! I am 11th generation American so I am not going anywhere. If you insult us, you do not belong here...and neither does your *art.*

I WOULD NEVER, EVER TRY TO TALK WITH YOU.
NOT THAT YOUR SELF ADORATION WOULD ALLOW ME TO INTERVENE.

NO, WE DON'T. WE CONSIDER IT BLIGHT.

SO DO WHAT THE TRUE ARTISTS DO AFTER A BROADWAY SHOW CLOSES. DISPOSE OF IT AND START ANEW.

SO YOU DID THIS BECAUSE YOU HAVE A GRUDGE? GOOD FOR YOU. WE DON'T CARE.

YOU ARE CULTURALLY IGNORANT, PHILOSOPHICALLY SPEAKING, OF COURSE.

I have spent so much time speaking to those with second rate intelligence's and a bone to chew that I need not answer here more that I have already. Get an art education, we have a great gallery here in dc. Then, just grow up. It has been up 10 yrs., no one has died from it, and one of my neighbors thinks its just great. The other ones dont say anything, and i didnt ask. if anyone can prove a reduction in property values I would like to see it. Otherwise, just get lost internet trolls.
