POTD: Art is What You Make It

POTD: Art is What You Make ItArt is What You Make It Paris, France 2013

Aside from it’s inherent characteristics, how we react to art is also a reflection of our background, our experience and the times in which we live. So, after walking around Paris seeing so many tourists using their mobile phones to take self-portraits of themselves with famous sights or art in the background, you have to forgive the Fashion Queen and I for having the obvious reaction to this otherwise rather fine piece of sculpture at the Louvre. I’m sure it had a more historically plausible interpretation (although all the signage was in French), but sometimes you have to go with your gut reaction.

  1. How Fun! 🙂 Reminds me of a modern version of the myth of Narcissus! Check Wiki for the details if you don’t remember the story.
