That is a very tiny leaf lol

This makes me sad, I always enjoy a man with a larger leaf. Oh well you can't always get what you want.

I agree with the everyone else that the leaf is just too small. What would I do with what's hiding behind it? I think there wouldn't be much I could do with it. Maybe help shake the dew off periodically? Perhaps I am missing the point of the art all together.... let me focus on just the upper segments.

Naaaaahhhhhh......

hahahahaha! If the torso had the rest of his body (and was, ya know, a real person) he would drive a sports car or a monster truck.

Trixie said...

Kitty Stampede said...

he got's one wee willy winkie.

i would prop that up on the mantle for shits & gigs.

actually it reminds me of last night, my husband and i went to the national art gallery, free night, YAY! anyways we were being so immature and were pointing out tiny wonks and giggling. and making snark remarks about art we thought was dumb. it was a riot.

Hehe! He sacrificed his balls for his freak torso lol. I could never have this anywhere near my house! Yikes!

Kathryn said...

Not a piece I would want to own..while torso is nice, the covering leaves less to the imagination.
