I didn't watch it much, but I caught an episode of Everybody Loves Raymond once when his mom took a sculpting class and brought home a piece she did in class. She made it the center piece of the living room, so when you walked in it was right in your face. Everybody but her thought it looked like a vagina, until the end when it finally dawned on her. This made me think of that epidsode.

@PennyPurple - Just tell people that art is subjective. Then throw a cup of water in their face. That will really confuse 'em razz.

So, this is totally supposed to invoke a vagina, right? I get that classic Prince sacred/profane dichotomy going on here.

Looks nice. How far is this from the park with the sculpture garden near the art center?

I honestly don't think that the purple raindrop looks anything like a vagina.

The one from Everybody Loves Raymond? Vagina was the first thing I thought of...
