That's… but its… I don't… just… help. Someone help.
It's a caricature of a famous statue of Saint Wenceslas in Prague. More information here: http://www.ce-review.org/99/19/pinkava19.html
It sure is! Its located in the Lucerna arcade just off Wenceslas Square. There used to be another one next to it of Jesus dressed as as a gymnast but it got taken town for some reason! http://farm1.static.flickr.com/23/34616936_330d86…
Some things are art and some things are just retarded
#5 could just be one of those street performers you see in vegas….then they scare the crap outta you when you get closer
located in Copenhagen !
#12 seems legit.
#17 currently in wall street.
There's one in Los Angeles too. Maybe it's an Ernst & Young thing. The doors don't match LA's unless they've changed them since the pic was taken.
The moral of this story is, money doesn't keep you warm.
#22 for the win!
You can have this but if one puts up a Cross!! Ohhhh the horror!!!
It's the Penis statue in the (in)famous Red Light District of Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Thanks. I was wondering if that's where it was. Been there but didn't see that anywhere. Wondered how I could have missed something like that.
Yep, Amsterdam baby!! amazing city…
What? It's just a giant bowling pin with two small bowling balls. I really don't see what's wrong with it.

Houseball by Claes Oldenberg (the same guy who brought us that giant clothespin)
Bethlehemkirch-Platz, Mauerstrasse, Berlin
Stainless steel, fiber-reinforced plastic, jute netting, polyurethane and polyvinyl chloride foams; painted with polyester gelcoat 27 ft. 6 in. (8.4 m) high x 24 ft. 4 in. (7.4 m) diameter
The original Houseball, made for the performance Il Corso del Coltello, was based on the idea that one could gather all one's possessions in a large cloth and tie them up in the form of a ball that would roll — thereby making any other transportation unnecessary — to its next destination. The house was left behind; its contents became a house in itself. In Il Corso del Coltello, the Houseball, second only to the Knife Ship as a thematic object, was made up of the possessions of Georgia Sandbag, a character played by Coosje, and it accompanied her on a journey across the Alps. Later, Coosje came to see the Houseball as a symbol of displaced populations, the ordeal of refugees, and in 1993 she proposed a larger, permanent version of the sculpture for a site in Berlin, near what had been Checkpoint Charlie, the gate of entry in the Berlin Wall. The site was a traffic island, visible from all sides, in the midst of a new business complex. The Houseball was approved, but shortly after fabrication of the piece began, the site was returned to members of a family dispossessed during World War II who planned to put a building on it. Quite characteristically, the Houseball was again on the move.
The first appearance of the sculpture was in Bonn, in front of the Kunst- und Ausstellungshalle der Bundesrepublik, Deutschland, to which it journeyed by boat from a factory near San Francisco through the Panama Canal and up the Rhine River. The following year the sculpture was shipped — suspended by a 300-foot-long cable attached to a Russian helicopter — from Rostock on the Baltic Sea, and lowered onto a permanent site in Berlin not far from the original location, on the Bethlehemkirch-Platz, in front of a building by Philip Johnson.
I still don't get it….
