This is what we do for the joy of the King,
For His peaceable Kingdom,
For a world in despair.
And this is why we bring any hope we can give,
Any bread from the table,
Any touch of His hand.
This is what we do.
This is where we go.
This is why we sing.
This is how we live.
This is who we are.

You tell me . . . Is this art?

In the broadest sense, of course it is.  As you can see from the man in the background, this is a sculpture of some kind of a pig-god.  (By Chinese artist Chen Wenling.) See all the little red piggies worshiping? I suppose in 3-dimensions it's pretty scary, but the photo makes me laugh. As my mom used to say, "It's so ugly, it's cute!"  [okay--as Sarah Bruce commented, "cute" is a stretch.]  Believe it or not, I found it on the Drudge Report!!

Great way to start a new week, huh?

If you're looking at this before bedtime, sweet dreams!

Gross. I don't always understand art and I don't understand this so I guess I would consider it art.....but I don't see anything cute about it. Yuck is actually the word that comes to mind....maybe "creepy" also.

This, quite literally, is probably the most grotesque thing I've ever seen. Admittedly, when I first opened your blog, my words were, "What the hell is that?!" It's disturbing....really.

This the most horrible thing I have seen in a long time. Remember, I have toddlers and we are still in I have seen some ugly stuff recently...I wonder if it smells too. It is not art!
