    Hang in there!


  11. this is the kind of sculpture that would be synonymous with the city its in, don't you think? and the fact that i haven't heard about it until you wrote about it here is saying something. they should put more advertisement on this.

    I looked it up, and the man is supposed to be Sigmund Freud. It *is* a funny sculpture.

    In New Jersey, there is a place called Grounds for Sculpture. Some of the more interesting sculptors include George Segal who does realistic people waiting on a bread line and J. Seward Johnson who recreated Impressionist paintings.

  25. Art has many forms and I guess weird is one too anyway the creator has achieved one thing, the statue is addictive.

  26. Nice! It looks like an old Laurel and Hardy movie 😉

  43. Beautiful snap!. In my home town Bellary, there was this ritual of hanging a man for few minutes (on shoulders)during Moharaam.

    Amazing! In Manhattan a few years back, there was an art installation of life-sized statues of people on top of very tall buildings. Looking at them from below one had the terrifying sensation that they were going to jump down!
