While We're on the Subject of Strange Art





(Aka: "Things People Do in Austria, Part II.")

Check out the "Wellness Skull." Created by Dutch artist Joep van Lieshout and positioned near a busy intersection in Vienna, Austria, the Wellness Skull holds a fully-functional sauna. When in use, steam rises from the skull's eye sockets. I'm kind of loving this. How great would it be to have one in your very own backyard?

Hey, guess what????? I was just in Vienna and I saw that last weekend, you know, because I live in Slovakia, its only a half-hour flight. Everybody in my family was wondering what it was. There were a lot of people getting their picture taken infront of it.
