Michelin Man Sculptures. er..?

Is it me or is there something rather disturbing about this?

So what constitutes "a very detailed piece" when the subject is basically a stack of tires? I don't see any tread on the tires!

..and indeed, I am quite disturbed by the Michelin Man posing as Marilyn Monroe. It's wrong on many levels.

You're not wrong.

The Pietta

"Inspired by what is probably the world's most beautiful sculpture, this rendition shows the Madonna gazing with down-turned eyes at a Michelin tyre. This piece is highly detailed".

I didnt appreciate how bad these were till I saw this. I don't like slagging off other artists, but holy-moly... !

reminds me of our local milk commercials where their mascot, CLO [short for clover] is doing just the same thing...gag.

only one I liked was CLO, outstanding in her field

now that was bright.
