Geppetto's Hammer, Again

.
I hope it doesn't seem like I'm just recycling material but the more I look at it the more fascinated I become with Kindly Geppetto in Citygarden. It's made to look like the simplest toy or cartoon but there is something terribly malevolent about it. The wood carver is actually about to whack the hell out of his creation. Pinocchio aspired to become a real boy. He ain't gonna make it in this version of the tale.

I think Gepetto could use some anger management sessions! Neat perspective on this one B.

I love pictures like this. Very nice. Also I was just thinking how cities can be so different yet so similar. I recently took pictures of people in a fountan and hip hop street dancers in Philadelphia.

Have a great day!

I likes it a lots. Definitely have to check this out next time I'm in town. Also, now I have Maxwell's Silver Hammer in my head...
