The eyes of Doctor T. J. Eckleburg are blue and gigantic
In this place full of shades of gray, this is the only colorful object. Color itself is a recurring symbol throughout the novel, and it is evident that this billboard does not fit in with its surroundings. It is a monument advertising a wealthy man’s practice to the urban poor. Blue, in a sea of gray.
