You can pick out one of those artists at a glance. They "dance to a different drummer" and the result is visible. We watched them move about the town with freedom to dress quirky, live on the time table directed by the sun and it's shadows, and care less what people think about their work.
This guy represents a shaman. A shaman (shay'man) is a hocus pocus kind of fellow that supposedly talks to dead ancestors. It is believed that only he can heal folks, receive direction, curses, etc. from the spiritual world. Magic is his game and deceit is his name! Looking into those dark holes for eyes gives me the willies! Perhaps his magical talent is the ability to scare the germs right out of sick folks! I'd certainly abandon ship if I were a virus and saw this coming at me!
Truly, ART is in the eye of the BEHOLDER! Although I doubt I will ever buy anything like this, I really DO appreciate the talent it took to fashion this fella out of scrap metal. Now just who would think of such a thing and then actually DO it?
TALENT ON STEROIDS! That's our explanation!
