Video of the Day: Obama’s on Fire (Literally)
Just in time for the president’s visit to Beijing next week, Chinese artist Liu Bolin — known primarily for his crazy camouflage work — has debuted a bronze effigy entitled Burning Man Obama, which he hopes to sell for $15,000. The sculpture was inspired by this Time Magazine cover and Obama’s victory last November.
While a flaming Obama head might mean something else to most of us, Bolin insists that his work is intended as tribute: “I think it represents more his popularity… I think my piece represents more the fact that Obama’s on fire.” That said, we can only imagine what would happen if something like this fell into the wrong hands.
