Art 101

Sobek takes us on a wonderful journey through a brief history of art, featuring Mr. Potato Head.

In this simple sculpture, we see that the Romans adopted the Greek focus on
excellence of form, as well as the underlying potato-based mythos. This
obsession with copying everything the Greeks did has led some scholars to
describe the Romans as "history's wankers."


Classic. If you want a good laugh, check it out.

Funny.... I had never heard of cubism till I went to that Dali museum and they had a naughty picture done in cubistic (sp?) style... Makes sense... Art made out of cubes... GENIUS!!!

"History's wankers" - I can just hear the British accent in that phrase. lol
