I saw this at the Taipei MRT main station. The little kid was just as confused as I was by whatever the heck it is. Anyone know what it is?
Meaningless anthropomorphic statue with a chicken head?
I admit it’s bizarre.
Oh c’mon guys, that is the ideal look most Xiao jie’s aim for. Small unisex body, a big red pout, hue bulging big alien eyes and the exaggerrated head is ‘art’.

MAN, that is weird !! Its not a new fried chicken franchise is it?
I have no clue!
Oh, and, though it’s hard to tell, the glistening on the statue is actually water because it is a quasi fountain. Seeing it in real life you really think it’s naked, and glistening with sweat…but with…a weird…bird…head. Ugh. Still gives me the shivers thinking about it.
Actually it is rather disturbing. I should think you should pass on that pic and a write up to the Associated Press !!
thanks for pointing out the creepy ass statue that has haunted me every time I pass by it. I am seriously a little disturbed that statue actually got accepted and commissioned. Whoever was in charge, what were they thinking?
Humanity, at its absolute animalistic worst, is actually good for Earth. That is, the human form, but with a bird brain - without the defining feature of our species, in other words - is actually nurturing the Earth: the ‘sweat’ dripping off the thing’s body is watering the grass and allowing it to grow and thrive.
So, ‘don’t think too much’. Everything will be OK and everything will turn out alright as long as we don’t over-analyse our behavior and don’t bother trying to find a better way to do things. I believe the sculpture is called “Chabudouism”.
meh. It’s a too-skinny chick with oversized eyes.
