This, my friend, is where all those who flip people off at a regular basis meet first when they die. They must first go through him, if they want to get to anyone else, and-kidding, kidding, eheheh. But really, I do believe this is meant to teach people a lesson about flipping others off. Honestly, look at the way he's on a shark. This would show that the language he uses is quite powerful, and hurtful. However, look at the skulls in the water. This would show that the water he swims in is filled with death and dispair. In other words, if you flip people off too much, you might end up going... down there. Now, I have an explanation: We as humans don't really know our own strength that well; we take it for granted every day, and expect people to just toughen up and move on... What if there's a really sensitive person out there, and he's had a really bad day, and the next thing HE knows someone flips him off. What if he kills himself just because of that? It would be the straw that's broken the cammel's back, my friend. In conclusion, I highly suggest that we should learn our strengths and weaknesses, and learn how powerful we really are as humans. We shouldn't be prideful about our power, but knowledgable and honorable. We cannot end up being like the figure we see in this photograph.
True Stefan, in fact this is just a commission from the owner of a Rock and blues bar, so i decided to make something related to the bar and make it look cool. i tend to make my personal work spontaneously, therefore i'm the only one who will find a true meaning behind, but i just find intriguing how someone could get any meaning out of this.
I can tell you one thing, my friend. I only "wasted" my time on the analysis that I made to try and help other people understand moral goodness in the world. I'm truly sorry if I've offended you in any way for trying to make the world a better place, but that's simply the way I am. I didn't simply just "waste my time," in fact, I'd say that I had fun writing that. You see, while it's true that most people wouldn't be willing to read that, I still had to have faith that someone out there would be patient enough to read such a long text... And, as luck my have it, you are that person. I deeply thank you for taking the time to read my comment, sir. Truly, you have touched my heart, whether you appreciate the comment itself or not. In return for your kindness, I shall comment on a few of your very own deviations. Would that be alright?
Please feel free to comment on any of my deviations.
Moral goodness is subjective, and to apply it to the artist who sculps a dude riding a shark and giving the finger is stretching the ability of THE BEST psychs on the planet to analyze, much less the wannabes.
I'm a fairly intelligent person. I don't just jump to conclusions. So I've looked over what you've pointed out, and what I've pointed out.
In the end, it is a sculpture of a dude riding a shark flipping everyone off. Unless it is Charlie Sheen on the shark, there isn't much else to it. It is an incredible sculp, though.
And to TornadoWraith88, it wasn't a shot. I'm speaking my mind. I wasn't aware that doing that is considered offensive. Do you have a problem with that? Did I use curse words or insulting language? Nope. Did I threaten anyone? Nope. I said what I was thinking, and the day that THAT becomes a problem is the day I no longer want to be around.
No, please, excuse me for offending you. I am deeply sorry, truly I am. You see, I believe that I was going to go ahead and share what I BELIEVED to be moral goodness with this world. While it's true that I don't have the right to decide what is good and what is not, I can tell you this much: it should be somewhat obvious that flipping people off isn't a good thing, wouldn't you say? Hahah, of course it's not a good thing. I was simply just stating this to the world, so that way someone would feel better about their day, having not been flipped off, you know? I was just hoping that I could make a difference in someone's life for the better, that's all, really. *Smiles at you* I deeply thank you for trying to defend the other person though, because it proves that you're a good person in general! After all, you just jumped right in there head-first, ready to defend a random civilian, heh. That is, if you didn't already know him somehow. Anyways, thank you for being such a kind person in general. And what you said is true, by the way. If I think that I have the authority to say what is or is not accepted as a moral goodness, then I am, indeed, arrogant. I believe that goes for anyone, my friend, heh. *Smiles at you again* In return for your kindness, as well as wisdom in this situation, I would be more than willing to add a few, friendly comments to your deviations, if that would be alright. I'd be more than willing to do so, after all. ^_^
