3/28/2005: Massive ice sculpture



"Tête de singe sculptée dans la glace illuminée durant un gala de danse moderne de Robert Wilson sur le site d'une exposition à Nagakute," says the official caption at Yahoo! France, which seems to indicate that this massive ice sculpture was part of a reception for the modern dance of Robert Wilson?



Ah spectacle.

what the heck is Nagakute, I can understand the rest easily enough.

all i can think is "Dr Zaius, Dr Zaius!" as sung by the Simpson's.



capnhowdy  Monday Mar 28 04:43 PM

Very beautiful.
I wonder how big it really is. If the houses and things in the background are real, this thing is enormous.
Where did the flourescent fishy go in the second image?



Happy Monkey  Monday Mar 28 04:54 PM

I'd guess the fish is a boat.



Trilby  Monday Mar 28 05:03 PM

Dr. Zaius made a monkey out of me.

This is part of EXPO 2005 Aichi, Japan. The sculpture reminds me of the National Geographic pictures of the snow monkeys sitting in the hot springs.

Bruce, thats what I thought as well. I remember seeing the shows about those. They are some smart monkeys!

Very creative with the sculpture. I love it. I wonder how long it took to make.

if you look closely, you can see the silhouette of an outboard motor against the bottom left of the fish, capnhowdy.

Thanks, LJ. Now that I see that, it really puts things in perspective; sizewise.
Now I can't decide which one I like best - the monkey or the boat.

capnhowdy  Tuesday Mar 29 08:59 PM

I guess the fish's left, xoB.......... LJ- you there?................

OK, that works. Also, butt end of the fish on the right side of the screen. :hafucking
