RE: Neat statue
Check out what I just found on my parent's bookshelf! It's not the exact same one, but it's similar.

That's pretty neat. A high school friend of mine said that his mom has a similar statue. Mine was finally delivered on Friday. I'm quite pleased with it. The level of detail is amazing. Here are some pictures. My carpet is soft, so that's why it is leaning.

The book on his lap has lines from Darwin's The Descent of Man (1871).

It's actually a box.

That's a pretty cool statue you have there, man.
I remember you had a cool looking notebook, still got it?

And to think, the only thing I'd want to buy off the internet would be this thing:

It's called the Useless Box, all it does is turn itself off when you turn it on.

Ooh - I like it very much! Smile
It's a much more explicit statement than the original Rheinhold piece... which was only just suggestive.
While yours is more chimp-like, the Rheinhold is more a suggestion of ape.

I don't know much about it but it might be possible Rheinhold may have been in a position to only be suggestive rather than explicit. His original looks to have included some torn bible pages and of course the "Darwin" written on a book spine.
I love that it's concept has been championed by other artists - they are all wonderful pieces! Thumbsup

Where you gonna display yours - home or office? It is a conversation starter.

Well, since I'm aiming to be a super villain, I'd like to hook it up to a button that controls a trap door in the floor to dispatch my enemies. I'll attach a hinge to the top part, that way I can flip it open and hit the button inside.

I certainly do. I'll probably use it for taking field notes in my primatology class.

I'm pretty sure the art paper I attached on a previous page mentions the conflict between religion and science.

Mine is currently sitting on my TV stand. I'll have to find a better place for it in the future. Please refer back to my comment about the trap door.
