Re: Great Works of Art!

The subject of safety and security in New York Harbor came up recently in another thread so I thought I would share one of the works of the artist Duke Riley, it's a little tongue-in-check and gave me a laugh when it happened-

In 2007, Riley launched a replica of the Revolutionary War era Turtle, a small wooden submarine designed to enable American patriots to sink British Navy ships by attaching mines to the hulls. He and two companions who had helped him construct the wooden submarine were arrested by the New York City police when they came within 200 feet of the Queen Mary 2, without authorization, at New York City's Red Hook Brooklyn cruise ship terminal.[3] Jesse Bushnell, one of the men arrested with Riley, is a descendant of David Bushnell, the inventor of the Turtle.[4]

Now that I look at it in the context of the sock monkeys sailing, and see some parallel themes, I wonder if we can attribute the two works to the same artist? None is given but I wonder if they could both the product of the same mind?

Re: Great Works of Art!

It was never clear to me weather Panope was drawn as a toy or if I was a giant saving a life sized Panope from doom.

My mum has produced a new series inspired by my adventures at sea...

Re: Great Works of Art!

These works by Ben Young caught my eye. Made from laminated glass and cast concrete.
