Art Appreciation Fridays with copyranter, #7.


(L)—Michelangelo's "David" (1504), 5.17 meter marble statue. Considered by many art historians to be the single greatest piece of art in the history of civilization.
(R)—Replica of of "Gift" (1958). Original (1921) by Man Ray (Emmanuel Radnitzky). Painted flatiron with row of tacks, heads glued to bottom. Considered by copyranter to be the single fucking greatest piece of fucking artwork in the history of the entire fucking world.

Who needs an iron when you're naked, right? Honestly, the pain we bring on ouselves; and, as men we don't even have to deal with hair dryers, curling irons, etc... Then again, I'm not exactly shaped like David, either.

I'd fuck David.

At least try. He's awfully damn big, heavy, immobile and rigid.

I'd have to circle him slowly, considering my options, power drill in hand before deciding on the most satisfying approach.
