you would have to stoop and look under her skirt, tho, seems keen.

yeah, I suppose it is nice the artist put so much forethought into his work.

Looks correct to me.

I visited the Hakone Outdoor Art Exhibit last month and have never seen anything like it.

Not much on the Web about it, though.

Japan. Go see it.

I’m sorry but I miss classical art and the classical world. I was raised on the arts and took a nonjudgmental stance until it drove me literally crazy. Again, I’m sorry, but I really dislike most of these statues. Let people be naked once they’ve solved the world’s problems and learned what love is.

Please don’t make me stare at metallic genitalia in public places — it makes me not want to have sex, ever, because I’m ashamed of how lost and greedy humanity has become.

I do not want to bring a child into this world and have him be forced to consider this art somehow good. I was hoping to look at these photos and laugh, but I didn’t because it reminded me of how ugly contemporary people tend to be. I just felt nauseous at how low people are willing to go in order to feel “higher class” (they’re too stupid to think of the word “sophisticated” generally), and how entitled they feel to impose their bad aesthetics on everyone. I don’t want to pay any taxes for this crap, and I’m someone who once wrote graduate paper on Robert Mappelthorpe and the NEA. Boy, was that a bunch of propoganda I was fed. If you guys like it then good for you, but as for me: NO THANKS, not anymore.


You are one fukt up bee-atch, Ging!!

Why am I thinking that you don't get laid much as it is?

Personally, I love most all of these statues.
Thanks for the post.

And what the heck is that, MSN?

This one is obviously just a Katamari.

This, on the other hand, is non-ironically one of my favorite statues in the world. I would love to own a small replica of it. Anyone know where I could get such a thing?
