the walking {sock} monkey (with extra witch-baby action)


she's a bit non-plussed
For a little reference, if you are not familiar, this sock monkey is based on the sculpture Walking Man by Alberto Giacometti. Mister was afraid one might think this was a parody of our President but I knew it was Giacometti right away. SWOON!


  1. Eeek! That's one scary looking monkey.
    In an ideal world you'd be able to sneak him into an art gallery and put him next to his sculptural equivalent, but I'm guessing the security guards wouldn't get the joke.

    1. you'd be surprised at how successful people have been at sneaking artwork into museums. when the mister used to work at LACMA someone ws able to get a piece up for at least a week before it was noticed!

    When you posted the photo of all your sock monkeys back on January 3rd, I immediately thought of Giacometti when I saw this one. It just so happens that I saw a WHOLE ROOM FULL of Giacometti's sculptures back in October at an exhibit titled "Transfigurations: Modern Masters from the Wexner Family Collection." (Yes, that would be Les Wexner, chairman and CEO of Victoria's Secret and Bath & Body Works, among other things...) Here's a link (don't know if it will work) to some photos of what I saw (courtesy of The Columbus Dispatch.)

    Hope you and your mister have a wonderful year!
