Random Discovery

A.K.A. CASE CLOSED
I visited the UWF art museum the other day and saw an exhibit that made me think about my prior blog entry. There I was viewing this piece and thinking to myself “My God, everything I said was so right.” So I put it up to you guys. What does this sculpture look like to you? Also what do you think the title is? In my next blog I’ll reveal the title info but I wanna hear what you people think first.


I do want you all to know that I put myself at great personal risk to get you this rare glimpse from the inside of the UWF art museum. I had to fend off a 120 lb art geek who wanted to confiscate my camera. I quickly countered his verbal attack however by bolting out the nearest exit. Followed by a car chase that may or may not have “actually” happened…depending on who’s telling the story.

Mark...thanks for risking your camera and safety to get us this rare glimpse of "Enormous Elephant Terd". I have been wanting to see this exhibit for quite some time now! We appreciate all the you sacrificed in the name of art to get this picture to us. Who was this sculpture by again? Was it Rodin ???

Da Beef said...

Oh wait...Rodin did "The Thinker" not "The Stinker" ....my bad!

O.K., Dad says it looks like a filter bag from his carpet cleaning machine...or what we sometimes call an "elephant turd". Now I thought it looked like a phallic symbol after losing a battle with a weedwhacker. Dad also wants to know if you are now banned from the UWF museum as WELL as the High Museum? Rope?

I've only seen a bigger piece of crap once and that was after the all you can eat night at
Los Rancheros. I just want to know how they got it to stand up like that.

I'm thinking this is quite fantastic. It clearly demonstrates the artists appreciation for classic television! I don't know what this elephant turd stuff is all about. Elephants make flat, pie-shaped turds.
This is clearly an impressionists sculpture of Barbara Eden as "Genie" in I Dream of Genie, the popular sitcom starring Dick York that made the transition from Black & White to Color. Outstanding lady that Barbara, son died of a drug overdose...

The title was "Tango Nebula", sorry no one wins the grand prize...

Mad Mike said...

Ohh tango nebula, I see it now!

tango nebula is really fancy ten-dollar wording for "cornhole"
