Memento Muri

Human Support (Kit Sailer)
Another 1980s gem from the Cityarts Workshop. This one from 1985 plays well with its location: under the viaduct from the BQE to the Williamsburg Bridge at Havermeyer Street & S. 4th St. Is there a moral (as well as a mural) in the title, "Human Support" (you can just make out on the crosspiece)?  Remember, you drive on the backs of giants? Or, in the words of our president, "You didn't get there on your own?" Or, simply, you never know what you'll find beneath the bridge?
