What emotion does this sculpture – Three Businessmen Who Brought Their Own Lunch: Batman, Swanston And Hoddle – by Alison Weaver evoke in you? Do you think Batman, Swanston and Hoddle feel that they have anything to look forward to?
My favourite entry of the week was this one from Gilly.

Cool shots, BB!
Very interesting sculptures…not sure what they say to me..they could have been watching the stock market returns. 🙂
Haha! Good one, Charles 😀
the middle one particularly is looking forward, he’s doing a great big ooo because of something he can see! Thnaks for the shout out honey 🙂
Yes, he’s like a child in a candy store – I find it quite a disturbing piece of art
Great shots of really wonderful statues. Good job!
Thanks, Tina. It’s a strange but compelling sculpture. 🙂
Not blessed in the looks department, are they? 🙂
😀 Their bodies are so skinny, but one has a little round middle. Very odd little men.
Lovely pics, BB, but weird subjects, lol! Quite nice when you get used to them though…
Thanks, Adee. I agree that they are weird but they certainly cause people stop and look 🙂
the title of the sculpture is strange, for me. I find these heads very expressive.
Yes, it is strange, Benedicte. I think that there is something haunted and sad about them.
This is from the website link: “Artist Alison Weaver claims that while the men are named and motionless, they are also intended to be anonymous and to represent being ‘trapped in the perpetual motion of consumerism’. “
I also find these fellows disturbing, Bluebee. They look a bit like they are watching an extraterrestrial invasion.
I think you’re right, Monica! 😀
They are certainly different, and the names fit quite well. They somehow seem to express futility.
I agree, Col – there seems to be a kind of hopelessness about them.
I want to see what they’re staring at, bb, … especially the whistling one… or mayhap they’re trying to confuse us, whilst they’re upto something … ?.. mayhap that’s a clue to my mindset? 😉 xPenx
Haha – yes, perhaps they are up to something…
I feel that these 3 time travellers are saying WTF! and ‘gentlemen, let’s get back in the time machine’ 😉 It’s a pretty funny artwork – I’d like to see it in the ‘flesh’
“WTF!” hahaha – love it 😆
Fascinating! I love it. 😉
They’re pretty freaky 🙂
