The J. Paul Getty Trust - Bronze Statue Biting Baby Hand
I like to call this little diddy “Old man Bearded brute with a hunger for babies infantile delicacies.” Okay, okay… so I don’t remember the real name, but I think mine is fitting. This was taken on an artistic, inspiration gathering trip to the J. Paul Getty Trust, or “the Getty” as us art folk like to call it. Cast from bronze, I’m sure this piece made for some interesting conversations on the coffee table of some overzealous Roman prince.

(Clearly I know nothing about this piece and smart me didn’t even think to take a snap of the placard that was with it. world – 1, Luke – 0… you will rue the day world… rue the day…)
