Sculptures of wolves mauling tourist appear in New York City parks

Make that an International Treasure. I just laughed like a drain at the terrible events of October 29th, 1929. Impaled on tusks :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:

Edit: “The only known giant octopus attack in the tri-state area.” set off my laughing gear too.

It seems like it needs to be not only a history, as @gracchus notes, but one of those deep level histories based on some heavy theory. Sort of like the mockumentary Houston We Have a Problem… A fake or alt history of NYC, but told dead seriously!

It will only work if Zizek writes it, though. It needs to have a good dose of Lacanian theory or some such.

Keep up the good work! We need more of this kind of thing!

Just think of it as an action shot, with the camera just before it falls. The maul goeth before the fall.

Bookmarked for future reference. I lived in NYC for years, and fell in love with the city and its history, but you take it to a new level. Really top-notch work, sir.

How do you know that’s a tourist, exactly? Looks more a like a banker to me. Or a Trump supporter, or …

I do! :slight_smile: . That was the first thing I thought of when I read this article. Meanwhile, I want to know where I can get a STL file of this sculpture so I can print one at home.

I love these projects and their almost-believable backstories SO MUCH. Especially the octopus one.

This might actually attract tourists. Everybody loves doggos!

90% of the production budget went to the food truck.

Subversive, mischievous, provocative, funny. Art quadrafecta.

I love that someone actually made a sculpture of wolves attacking and about to eat somebody. Metal AF, I approve

A brilliant line from a truly crappy (but watchable) movie.

Thanks for the compliment but 3D printing is not sculpture

That would be complete nonsense. How one fabricates an object has nothing to do with it. Would you reject lost-wax casting too?

There are actualy three living Koch brothers, Fred, Charles and William. Charles, and David while alive, just got all of the attention because of their overt politics and because they were the only ones still directly involved in Koch Industries after the big family legal fight.

In reality, though, this almost never happens.

3d printing is pushing a button
Reject lost wax?
A real art form and skill
I have done jobs via 3D print
It’s unfulfilling
