What a sight!

Kosh and I were walking around downtown yesterday evening, and decided to take advantage of one of the free things to do in Chicago: checking out the series of Chinese sculptures recently installed at Millennium Park.

Chinese Sculptures in Millennium Park ("Ying Yong Feng Dou" - 1)


This is the sight that greeted us. ... this piece is supposed to symbolise greed... well, what with the overly-endowed sow, and the glitzy gold, and bright red... it certainly shouts EXCESS to me!

You can see more photos of this and the other sculptures in my flickr photostream.

  1. Tell me you tagged this photo with "chicagoist" so Chicagoist.com can pick up on it and share it with their readers, too, and ideally posit the same thoughts you did.

  3. I would have to agree with Adam a bit over the top.

  4. This is an awesome photo! It does really capture the excess of the times and does remind me of the days of King Ludwig bankrupting his whole country so he could build his castle, doesn't it?

Dear legitimate commenters: all comments are welcome! My sincere apologies for making you go through the word verification hurdle, tho.

Dear spammers: please don't bother... I'm just gonna delete any spam that squeaks through word verification anyway, so why not save us both the trouble, eh?

Thanks!
