Crap Stats

I'm publishing this picture for posterity. This is, without a shadow of a doubt, the crappest statue I have ever seen in Paris. For some reason, someone, somehow decided that it was worth (dis)gracing the Parc Monsouris with this abomination. Every time I run past it (because I run in this park, but you'd be forgiven for thinking I wanted to escape this thing) I marvel at its crapness.

Unless this is a faithful representation of someone from a parallel universe where people are almost human, but - not - quite, this is a disaster on anybody's terms.

I haven't actually researched the piece, so maybe I've just cruelly destroyed some brave armless, foot-sculpting survivor or denegrated the only remaining representation of a modern day saint created by her alcoholic 5 year-old son, but somehow I doubt it.

Sorry if your sensibilities have been seared by this posting as much as mine have been battered by this excuse for a sculpture. Better days are coming...

I had to smile ... you were worried about a 'brave armless, foot-sculpting survivor'?

It begs the question though, would you forgive them the crappy factor simply because they were sculpting with feet? Does this lower the bar?

A can worms could be opened over this one ... the armless toe sculptors may have things to say for themselves.
