    "Reason and facts are sacrificed to opinion and myth. Demonstrable falsehoods are circulated and recycled as fact. Narrow minded opinion refuses to be subjected to thought and analysis. Too many now subject events to a prefabricated set of interpretations, usually provided by a biased media source. The myth is more comfortable than the often difficult search for truth."

    I like the one shoe on the floor! A very strange sculpture indeed.
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    HBO was running a doc on Andre the Giant. Wonderful sense of humor, but his favorite was his own flatulence which sounded like rolling thunder and could turn an elevator into a near death experience.

    Probably not. Very dodgy source at best <G>

    Seriously... you're right.

    That has to be the dumbest piece of art I have ever seen. I say this as a RISD graduate.

    What does it mean Norman? Is the Bulls fart, the angry fart of the collective animal kingdom at devil-humans iniquitous ways? Is it the turbo-fart of justice? What can this tell us about ourselves? Are our guts angry at so much burger consumption? Is this a cry for healthy gut flora? Or is the bull to blame for its own damn flatulence, innocent devil-human once again in the wrong time and the wrong place....? I'm confused.

    Please Norman, tell us why this is your favourite sculpture.

    The Bull... symbol of market economics... possesses the power to push the flabby devil of communism right into space... without even time to tie his shoes...

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    Does nothing for me. This is about as figurative as I like



    This this I could live with

    There is no rational, logical, or physical description of how free will could exist. It therefore makes no sense to praise or condemn anyone on the grounds they are a free willed self that made one choice but could have chosen something else. There is no evidence that such a situation is possible in our Universe. Demonstrate otherwise and I will be thrilled.

    I haven't much to say about the OP, except that I really enjoy sculpture where the forces/weights appear to be suspended or in motion.
