The Inexplicable

This "sculpture" showed up in the park in our neighborhood. Living where we do, renegade art shows up all the time in various places, so I was not entirely surprised to see some sort of Holiday Light Display. I was surprised, upon closer inspection, that this was the subject matter they choose to represent. I can only assume that the figure in the foreground is supposed to be Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim, who in this case is really tiny. Its like a grown man, only smaller. It also appears that Bob is the one who is actually crippled here, with his miniscule womens size 6 feet. Tim on the other hand, reminds me of the Kodama in Princess Mononoke. But Honestly, who knows with these kids today? Do YOU know? If so, please shed some 'light' on the subject, as there are several confused parties currently involved in an investigation.

  2. Limited artistic ability? But hey, if you can fashion a tiny human on a giant's shoulders out of lights then you should technically be able to create some proportionate feet. Oh well.
