He Said:

Another in the series of big rusty iron pieces. I think there's a song about this one: "Wheel by the road keeps on rusting."

Sorry, while I take photos of these, I just don't find them all that interesting. Perhaps they are too abstract for me. Perhaps I think that the artist is trying to pull a fast one on the public. Perhaps I'm not a big fan of modern art. I would bet that all three of these are true to some extent. But don't let that stop you from enjoying this piece.

She Said:

"Wheel by the road keeps on rusting" - hmmm. My partner has certainly come up with an interesting way of expressing his lack of enthusiasm for this particular item! I will have to admit that this isn't one of my favorite pieces, either, but it's by no means the oddest sculpture we've highlighted on these pages. Art, after all, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder, and everyone is entitled to his or her opinion. Perhaps if we had some notion of what the artist was trying to say this piece might be more appealing.
