Following up on this morning's report about the early morning removal of fertility goddess Cybele from Prince Street, Stu_Joe submits the above photo of the scene to the Curbed Photo Pool. Hey, is that a shrine being started to pay tribute to the departed statue? Er, no, just a street artist. Move along.
Which is exactly what Cybele has done. Gothamist reports, "We called Mimi Fritz and one of the gallery employees confirmed that Cybele as been permenantly removed to the artist's property upstate-- and will not be returned once the gallery moves to its new location on Greene Street."
