METAPHORICALLY SPEAKING

I'm a sucker for fun conceptual art. That's why when I spotted this series of sculptures I felt the urge to share them with you and hoped you would love them as much as I do.

Some of their names are directly related to its final form (like ‘Heads of the House’ above), but in others the relationship is less obvious. However, in every case the artist's intention was to play with the image of the house and have some fun with it—which I think he definitely did. Which one is your favorite? Mine? Hmmm...

Overall, this little jewel is a winner in my book.
