Moral Support


 I met up with a friend in the back and beyond of Snowdonia before the galleries shut again in Wales and bought this......isn’t he delightful? 
We met a third colleague and friend ( social distancing of course) who has had a dreadful time of late to offer some moral support.
The Welsh Countryside has never looked so alive

  3. I like him...he seems to be looking up at the sky pondering whilst scratching his tummy a bit. Completely comfortable with himself being nude. Well balanced: eyes, nipples, both hands. Relaxed. A good feeling. Stay well John, Hugs.

    , he is little darling, a d will make you smile every day. Looks like the grown up version of Morph from Vision On on BBC children's tv from way back when. You just had to bring him home to a place where he will be loved and understood!

  7. I wonder if your little statue is the male version of the Venus of Willendorf? I am wondering if the lines up the arms are the impression of tattoos?

    Hooray for moral (and sometimes immoral support). We all need it.

    I'd certainly like to know what he's thinking about as his face looks contemplative. Of course, he could be wondering where he left his drawers or where the draft is coming from! :) Enjoy your new friend!

    Hugs!

    1. Yes. You could dress him up for all the holidays. But please- no pants. Perhaps just tiny hats and scarves.

    2. I’ve stood him next to the kettle in the kitchen , where he’s standing “ proud”

  33. JG he looks like he was made from jobbie !!! He certainly has a chunky knob ! x

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love him! He’s “out and proud” and clearly comfortable in his body, dangly bit, wobbly bits and all! Quite aspirational, although the medical bods would question his BMI!

  35. How very interesting! One of my relatives came to visit us when I was younger (he lives in the Philippines) and he brought this wooden figure that had a barrel around him. When you lifted up the barrel, his thing stuck straight out, on a spring and it would jiggle. It both fascinated me and embarrassed me (because I was so fascinated by it).

      I remember we had one of those when I was a child! Yes a barrel with his head poking out then the jiggling thing on a spring underneath Which if I remember rightly made him very well endowed and I do remember the end of his endowment was a very bright red!
      I haven't a clue how we came to have it though. I'd completely forgotten about it until I read your comment.

  36. He is his own person, isn't he? Oné of a kind, unapologetically himself. Something has caught his eye, just as surely as he caught yours.

  37. Your taste in art is far from objective.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Your new statuette has a very SOULFUL look about him!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Your new statue might be considered a takeoff on Manneken Pis held in the Grand Place in Brussels, Belgium. MP at 61 cm (24 inches)even has an infamous wardrobe and is dressed up for special occasions.

  42. He looks happy and seems to have an outgoing personality. There is something strangely familiar about him like I've seen him before? I love everyone's description of him!

    ReplyDelete
  43. What a character! Here the outdoors areas are positively packed with people -- I guess everyone's taking advantage of their outdoor exercise, having nothing better to do during a lockdown. Glad you were able to meet up with your friend and colleague.

  44. At a loss for words

    ReplyDelete
  45. I too have no words for this piece of ... art!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I can see that it would be hard to resist buying this fun work of art a good conversation starter no matter where you put it.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I like it! What does that say about me?

    ReplyDelete
  48. Like it! I wonder where you got it? I used to stop at a pottery on the A5 (glasfryn?) It reminded me of things he used to make. He used to have (still has?) crowds of tiny "kiln gods" he's made. When this is all over, hopefully we'll be off that way again.
