If You Only Read One Post About A Sculpture Featuring Bernie Madoff, A Flying Bull & The Wall Street Crisis, Make It This One

Chinese Financial Crisis Sculpture

Bernie Madoff being pinned to the wall by a huge, farting bull…which is supposed to represent Wall Street.

All from the mind of Chinese artist Chen Wenling.

I mean, come on…that is AWESOME!

A question…if you had to create a sculpture that summed up what happened last year…what would it look like and why?

    I agree it’s awesome, though I don’t know what it means.

    My scultpure would look a lot like HR Giger’s Penis Landscape.

    Someone is screwing someone else,
    but they are getting screwed by someone else,
    who is getting screwed by someone else,
    who is getting screwed by someone else,
    who is getting screwed by someone else….

    And so on.

    Always interesting to see how freely the Chinese criticize problems in other nations.

    I guess it beats criticizing Beijing and finding yourself locked up in a re-education camp.

    Love the force which sends him to the wall..my god, what a fantastic sculpture! My sculpture – real estate crumbling in a sea of cash.
