I SEE PENIS: ASHTRAY
Two of my absolute favorite things. . . Big dick and bookshelves!
This cute little bugger belongs to British artist Rachel Whiteread. She found him on vacation in Egypt. Cast in cheap plastic, the phallus does not apparently function as a sexual device but an ashtray (or some confusing combination of the two). Rachel recently gave a tour of her studio to Tate Magazine, which published the picture above. If you'd like to read more from the interview click HERE. Below are two pics from her series of concrete sculptures of the negative space left by books on a shelf. Watch Colby's heart flutter in anticipation. . . Should I expect a delivery van soon!? Where did the books go?
