I know. Sounds like sour grapes. But today, the good news is anything goes. You can find a massive oak tree's stump saddled across a heavily bent iron fence surrounding a public school in London, a product of storm damage and insurance reimbursement, and then pay for the log, fence spearing the log with a lovely U-shaped bend, and somehow call it found art, win a chance to install it at a gala modern art expo at the Hermitage in St. Petersburg. Cool. Why not? I subscribe to a more traditional definition of art. I still largely reside in the 20th Century.
|This the small 16th C. chapel of St. Anton in Canillas de Albaida.|
Silouettes almost as tall as the 16th C. doors to the hermita/chapel of St. Anton, patron saint of animals; each year in Canillas de Albaida, St. Anton is taken for a procession around the village; and the priest blesses with holy water horses, mules, dogs, cats, every kind of animal, pet goats, the works. And I live with 9 cats and feed 12 (3 feral invitees).
