“Queen of the Wandering Races” by Craig David is kind of an odd figure in the West Side neighborhood of St. Paul. The shape and form are kind of baffling to me, but what I do appreciate is the different layers and colors. Every piece of the sculpture seems to have different layers and colors, from the massive “body” of the figure to the face to the crown. It’s clearly symbolic of the great diversity of the West Side, from the early Jewish community of the West Side Flats to the current District Del Sol.
