A statue of a naked, pregnant woman lofting a scimitar is no basis for a system of government.

The Angel of the North is a beautiful thing. Hirst is a chancer who makes terrible things. Or rather, he gets other people to do so, he's even less effective when he does it himself.

It would be great for making up stories about. In 1644, an unknown naked pregnant lady destroyed an invading Viking army.

Of course it is. One side believes that nudity and pregnancy in the same thought process is a vile sin against everything that is holy and natural. You know, those salt of the earth people; "Born again Christians"TM if you will.

I've always wondered how chicks came to mean women. I see chicks as little fluffy baby chickens, I can't see how that evolved into the present day meaning. Maybe from chicas?

I don't see statues of naked people lasting much longer in the demographic shift on display in that picture.
Interesting art, though. I think a Farker has linked to that before.

Doesn't mean it isn't ugly as sin.

I mean, people go to all sorts of things. Popularity isn't necessarily a metric for beauty, or freakshows wouldn't make any money.
 
2012-07-01 04:21:36 PM  
What's the big deal about a statue of an attractive, pregnant woman? Is it because she's nude?
 
2012-07-01 04:32:14 PM  
WHAT is she holding behind her back? Is that a little trumpet or a pizza cutter?

Some people think it is, some people think it isn't.

I mean, people go to all sorts of things. Popularity isn't necessarily a metric for beauty, or freakshows wouldn't make any money.

What matters in this case is that people come from all over the world to see that park. And it's a nice park. (IMHO, of course)

Well... I can't speak to the artists motives, but as for the art, I think think it's a great idea.

Keizer_Ghidorah: I'll never understand high art snobs.


To me, good art is any art that stirs mind in some way. It doesn't even have to be in a positive way, it can be negative too. This particular piece I think is wonderful because it depicts a fit pregnant woman in a powerful pose. She looks strong and proud. Having her be naked is even better as it challenges the puritanical belief that nudity is something to be ashamed of. I see no shame in that figure.

As for the guy who claimed it isn't good art... well... perhaps it offends his delicate sensibilities? Either way... it seems to have stirred something in his mind as well... so he's really only confirming my assessment that it is indeed good art.
