Palace of the Legion of Boner [Jul. 13th, 2006|06:15 pm]
Went to the Palace of the Legion of Honor today. I could babel about the art pieces and try to sound sophisticated, but I only want to talk about one:

Rodin's The Sculptor and His Muse

When I saw these piece, my immediate interpretation was as an apology to the lover of the Sculptor for Rodin's obsession with his craft.

Staring for months at a piece of marble, he might miss subtle queues from his love, like her reaching for his lust.

Of course, my interpretation is colored by my geekiness.

I am sure the actual meaning of the art is much more deep and meaningful, but not nearly as funny.

Ahh, but it's Rodin. Who wouldn't fall in love with marble shaped under his hand?
