Hang On - Who Are You?

He's Not A Hard-Boiled Character, He's Freud

Residents who were shocked to see what appeared to be a body hanging from the top of the Trade Centre building in Grand Rapids, Michigan, called the police and fire departments. But it turned out to be a life-sized sculpture of Sigmund Freud by Czech artist David Cerny. Suspended by one hand from a pole seven storeys up, it has previously been on display in Prague, London and Chicago. The sculpture will be in Grand Rapids until early next year.

FOOTNOTE: Analyse this.

Now that was funny! It would scare the heck out of a person though at first I bet.

I had to go and check at google image: Freud's hanging on a limb, the other one in his pocket. Cool. :_)

I expected you to say it was the Chinaman called One-Hung-Low.

I thought you were going to say it was the Chinaman -One-Hung-Low.

The story continues in my blog.
