I wish I'd had my fisheye lens! There was so much fisheyable material!
Oh, the phallusy of it all!
I'm pretty sure that you're not supposed to take pictures in museums.
The scepter of authority, also known as the hotrod, is just what this Snowday USA needs to honor St Valentine. What a snafu. Global warming is now said by Obama's Climate Scam Team to be causing cold artic air to attack water vapor put into the air only because warming evaporated seawater. Please ignore that this new snow crisis happened to start 12 years after the world temps stopped rising and exactly when the Solar Storms (sunspots) went into an absolute minimum. The shell game of shell games called Climate Science is back in town.
Ah! A Shiva Linga! Fascinating form, this one reminds me of a fascinating sculpture I used to walk by all the time.
I think someone deserves a tag for that Professor. Just sayin...
This all makes me wonder how Eric Williamson's appeal is going. (Did Eric Williamson ever have any appeal?)Also, isn't display of male genitalia in Madison discouraged, and possibly even dangerous?
@Jay It depends on the museum. This one permits photography (except in the special exhibitions). I was openly taking hundreds of pics. No problem whatsoever.
Oh, it's male genitalia week? In that case, I'd like you to meet my fwiend, Bigus Dickus.
I've heard the "Vagina Monologues" but never the penis/scrotum monologues with the possible exception of Brokeback Mountain. Would that qualify?WV: OVAints
Odd, I don't recall going to the Art Institute last night. Hmmph.
The is an excellent representation of what we saw wandering the temples near Angkor Wat in Cambodia. They are becoming increasingly rare there, however. There are thousands of yoni, but very few lingam/phalluses. Much easier to hack off and smuggle away (or send to a museum) than the wide bowls they were usually found resting in. The exception is at the top of the Kulen Hills at a place called Kbal Spean. There, hundreds of lingam have been carved into the stone in the riverbed, which were intended to help fertilize the valley below.
Art is made for the home, in other words it's made to be lived with, not to be gawked at in the transit of a museum walk. That's why one of the few great advantages wealth brings is the means to purchase a work of art, be it a giant Shiva Linga or a delicate watercolor, and then to live with it so that every now and then in a completely unforced way one really "sees" the thing.
What's Latin for "like mine, only smaller"?
The Art Institute is one of my favorite places to visit. I try to get there at least once a month. Having a membership is worthwhile, as you save a bunch of dough and you can get special passes for events and exhibitions.The MOMO is pretty cool too, if you are near there.If you are still in town tonight, check out Kikis Bistro- 900 N. Franklin. Great spot.
I'd say the food at Kiki's is only good, but the ambiance is perfect. The first time we went, we'd just returned from France and I kept trying to speak to the waitress in French, honestly forgetting we were back in the U.S. Had dinner at Everest last night...now can't wait to get back to Alsace in May.
The famous tale of the parking bollard worshiped as a Shiva Lingam in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park:http://www.nytimes.com/1994/01/24/us/shrine-removed-from-san-francisco-park.htmlThere used to be pictures on the web, showing it garlanded with flowers, but no more.

If you prick me, do I not bleed?
This may or may not be off topic but this thread seemed like the best place to bring it up:Apparently the 4chan pedobear is now a mascot for the Olympics
Uninspiring. Insufficiently monumental. Please see the famous water tower at Ypsilanti Michigan.
Let me guess, the weather's worse in the Windy City than Madison.Ann quoted... "Yesterday it was dick. Today it is balls."To paraphrase Van Heusen and Cahn, you can have one without the other, but it doesn't work as well.
Seriously, though. When ISN'T it all about male genitalia? Hmmm?
That big-legged chick is still staring at the buddha.
I meant the MCA, not MOMA.
Could some of you folks who've been commenting longer than I please fill me in?(Was the Professor this obsessed with male genitalia before she got married?)Anyway it says something good that she looks at a large phallic symbol and thinks "Oh, like Meade."
Well, given the topic, I can't let this one go by.Enjoy this animated French safe-sex advert but be advised -- it is most definitely NSFW.
"It's all about male genitalia this week."Now that's something I could get behind. But if you turn around, I think we could take snuggling to the next level.
It's all about male genitalia all the time.
"It's all about male genitalia all the time."Oh come on now, amba. You're a well-rounded woman. Surely these thoughts give way to other topics now and again. ;)
@amba Which are all about the designated goal.
