    I am liking this pieces very much. But I find I am thinking why is 2 peoples needing to make this horse rocking? Why one is not enough? Also, they are looking very much at each other in the film as if they are worry about saying the wrong thing. I start finding them to look, how you say, a bit shifty, especially the one on the right.
    Eat your heart out Mr Caro. There is only one God and he is Jeff.

    As for the other piece, there's more to be said about Ms Fritsch than about her 'Cock'. When sculpture becomes art simply by being big and/or a bright colour my Aunty Betty (who bears a striking similarity to Ms Fritsch) could do it.

    But of course she won't, which sadly is what it's all about.
