something New for sure!

Hey everyone. Have a look at this (not mine, just stumbled upon it on the internet. What do you all think? http://www.practicalfishkeeping.co.u...php?blogid=276
I have mixed feelings, it's original and well-done yet not natural, but I though I ough to share.

Ummm.... what can I say...



I LOVE IT!


I really like when folks think out of the box (no pun), and actually make it work. Very simple, and hilarious. I didn't read the info, but it seems to have a message that I'm sure will go over a lot of heads.

Ok, so I read and it seems like he was maybe trying to be a modern artist. But if the bricks were set up in a more Iwagumi fashion, I could see it being a humorous slap in the face.

Reminds me of the one with soccer player figures on a field of hair grass, or the lounging panda bears, but not as risky. I think it would look better with rusty bear cans and plastic bottles.

these are all clay bricks, naturally weathered in the Mississippi River.

I checked out that article a week or so ago and was thinking that it looked much like hydrophytes work!
Reading the post from jaidexl, it did just what it was intended to do! Art can invoke a reaction and portray meaning intended or not!
