  1. What incredible work! I love the shadow in your first photo, and the detail shows the intricacy of the construction.

  2. Glad you included the detail of the foot. What an astounding concept. Says something about the fragility of the human body, too. The enlarged shadow I really like too, but I can read too much into that that may not be intended by the artist.

    However, the shadow does make it look as though he is in a pissoir!
