Proof positive that the nutters in Canberra have truly lost the plot. Either that or it's a political message that the Gillard government are a load of tits.

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's a Skywhale - The West Australian (http://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/entertainment/a/-/entertainment/17082405/is-it-a-bird-is-it-a-plane-no-its-a-skywhale/)

Yup!!

Artist Patricia Piccinini says her inspiration came from the wonder of nature.

"My question is what if evolution went a different way and instead of going back into the sea, from which they came originally, they went into the air and we evolved a nature that could fly instead of swim," she said.

"In fact coming from a place like Canberra where it's a planned city that's really tried to integrate and blend in with the natural environment, it makes a lot of sense to make this sort of huge, gigantic, but artificial and natural looking creature."

Ms Piccinini says she understands the artwork will challenge public opinion.


Time for the funny farm for Ms Piccinini (Is that a PC name???)

Now, y'all be careful in the Canberra area

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's a Skywhale - The West Australian (http://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/entertainment/a/-/entertainment/17082405/is-it-a-bird-is-it-a-plane-no-its-a-skywhale/)

"In fact coming from a place like Canberra where it's a planned city that's really tried to integrate and blend in with the natural environment, it makes a lot of sense to make this sort of huge, gigantic, but artificial and natural looking creature."

Ms Piccinini says she understands the artwork will challenge public opinion.
"I think that's confounding for people because they don't know what the creature is, but secondly they don't know if it's an artwork or what it's trying to do," she said.

Ms Piccinini says the large breasts reflect how whales are mammals and breast-feed their young.

Centenary of Canberra creative director Robyn Archer says she wanted to offer the commissioned highly visible canvas to an Australian artist.


Personally I think it's a comment on the tits running this current government.

Designed by CASA, it was originally supposed to be an Eagle.

Is it Amanda Vandstone? Gina Swineheart? A CAsA spy drone?
Endless possibilities.

Man that's ugly.

Or unite it. Mind you, it's hilariously funny, though I'm glad I'm not a Canberra tax payer. $170 grand is a lot to spend on a balloon.

This thread so needs Slasher. :sad:

You wouldn't want to wake up, flat on your back after a hard night on the booze, and see that drifting over the top of you! You'd swear off the grog for life! :)

I've got to admit, some of these "artists" sure know to "suck on the public tit", when it comes to good-paying art commissions.

What's missing here, is - the main part of the body should actually have been a pig, replete with a large snout in a deep trough - and with a horde of Canberra public servants, artists, and politicians all hanging off those enormous tits! :)

It's new political policy. All woman can go back to work, no excuses now the Govt has introduced the tit whale to feed the babies. I've never seen so many titties on one mammal, I have to go now.......

Turtle it may be but the people who commissioned it must look like c****

PS. Sorry about the duplications but I put it in the Pacific forum for those who probably don't pass the doorstep of JB and they then saw fit to promote it to JB and then had 2 threads with the same name at the same time. :eek:
