Statues I Question
Doing research for that Stockholm Olympics logo made me even confuseder than when I started. Why did they use this image? What is that man doing to the horse? I thought that it would be some kind of statue or monument in Stockholm, but my hours of searching for it have been fruitless. But I DID find a bunch of other statues that I hope I'm misinterpreting...
Remember when Elaine found that mannequin of her in the store window? I felt a similar feeling when I saw this statue. It is an exact replica of my friend Christopher when he rides a turtle naked.
This one is a tribute to Diarrhea. Here is a princess riding a wave of her own fecal matter.
This one is called "Sculptor's First Try" and was a real bargain for the city of Reykjavik, Iceland. It depicts 2 fisherman that were looking for the best fishing spot, but suddenly realized that their work would improve if they stopped wearing boxing gloves.
"Dolphin Rodeo" shows what happens when you take dolphins lightly, and decide to mount them unbridled.
This one is outside of a library. Why is the mom so against libraries, that she has to yank her kid so violently out of one? IIs this a monument to book-haters?
