Takashi Murakami Sculptures

For whatever the reason, the sculptures of Takashi Murakami have been on my mind lately. I believe the two main figures here 'Hiropan' (the girl jumping rope with her breast milk) and 'My Lonesome Cowboy' (the guy making a lasso out of his semen) premiered in 1999. They are still used in exhibits, though and continue to be a fascinating tribute/mockery of the Japanese anime culture. Also, just to let you know that this is serious business, in May 2008 'My Lonesome Cowboy' sold for $15.2 million. How do you like that! :)

Maybe I should get into sculptures... Ha! Talk to you soon. :)
