Here's one I prepared earlier

By SlowSong
With apologies to Alberto Giacometti. Smile

Taken at Tate Modern yesterday. It was pretty dark so quality's not best, but I thought it fitted the Silly Sunday remit.

Not a lot you could do about the light, Chris, but the angle you have captured is comical.
Various alternative titles might just suggest themselves; I shall restrict myself to 'The Fisherman's Prayer'* and leave some fun for others Wink

When it comes to admiring works of art I am somewhat in my element, and it is whilst viewing such art that I often take time out to observe other peoples reactions and body language as they stare and ponder. This image would certainly get catch the eye.

Reminds me of the Fawlty Towers episode: "This Basil's wife, this Basil, this smack on head"

Is he made out of pipe cleaners covered in something mud-like?

Oh, so well seen, and the work of "art" looks just the sort of thing the stickman would do, or critique.
