Man Ray

Neither's completely gripping me, but the Manzu chair sculpture is tipping me in that direction this morning.

Well this time I have no trouble saying Man Rey.

I don't know if Man Ray is great, but he's certainly a lot of fun. He'll get my vote this round.

Ben said...

Man Ray, I guess.

I will give the nod to the first guy, mostly for "Naked Lady Falling Out of Her Chair." I have dreams like that where I am naked in school and doing dumb shit like that, so it speaks to me.

Manzù, though I wouldn't have thought so going into this.

I like Manzu, especially the reliefs. I think his Doors of Death are pretty much the best thing since Ghiberti.

Mariah says Manzu.

The sculpture guy

It's a Man Ray kind of vote. Manzu is kind of a Maillol reenacter.

Susan votes for Man Ray.

It's that contest where Man Ray gets a huge early lead, and then Manzù comes back from behind to take the lead, and then the last two votes hand the victory back to Man Ray, 7 votes to 6. The eyes have it, as it were!
