Eleven: No one really takes in the true beauty of such places, because so many people are just tourists who sit there and take pictures.

And I suppose 8th it's either comfort or freedom.
#98 to #89 - Absolute Madman (11/17/2012) [-]
Eleventh: I guess it means that you take the beauty of things away, the more pictures you take of it.

Like, we all have seen the Great Wall in China from Photos, but how many have ever been there? And even if you travel there, the awesomeness dropped a little, 'cause you were used to the sight by photographs and videos.

Plus you can't enjoy the beauty of something, while taking fivehundred ******* pictures.
And Tourists are bitches. Always going around in herds and stomping on awesome architecture and amazing nature stuff..

My opinion.

well he saws up the ladder to make fire
i think it means that you need to either choose between being free (climbing the ladder) or having necessities to live (the fire). You cant have both

Can someone explain the beer bottle with a fish hook to me? I understood everything else, but I'm in the dark about that one.

The one with the Washington Monument... It's definitely not his nose...
#76 to #73 - retrochris (11/17/2012) [-]
If it wasn't his nose, I'd have to look like this.
I don't think pinoccio got a boner from lying...though it'd make him a sex god)

I honestly like when art tries to be more Vague, and you just imagine things while looking at it, rather than it telling you what it is, gives more room for imagination.
User avatar #231 to #88 - boxdrop (11/17/2012) [-]
but you do have different artist, not many left but some who still do art like this and it varies in degree of blatant or hidden the meaning is.
#74 to #72 - ganondork (11/17/2012) [-]
Yeah, 'cause art with meaning totally doesn't exist anymore.
User avatar #230 to #74 - boxdrop (11/17/2012) [-]
All i ever see anywhere anymore is modern art and the only meaning behind that is being weird for the sake of weird or simplistic. A lot of good artist who have either a subtle or blatant meaning in their art aren't really around anymore because not a lot of people are interested in it anymore.
#232 to #230 - ganondork (11/17/2012) [-]
Then you've been looking at the wrong art I'm afraid.

that's not what he said, he just said that he missed it
User avatar #82 to #74 - paranoidmuffin (11/17/2012) [-]
Its not that it doesn't exist, its just hard to come by art with true meaning these days.
User avatar #97 to #82 - radiserne (11/17/2012) [-]
You obviously don't look at art anywhere else than on the internet then.

I enjoy all of these very much. It really reminds me of how much of a cynical ass hole I am when it comes to politics. I just love this stuff.

Explain the guillotine chair to me...
I know what the artist meant with it, but the blade would never be able to cut the kings head off unless he is really tall and has his head bend really far back...
User avatar #63 to #51 - beatmasterz ONLINE (11/17/2012) [-]
Maybe he was finally home from a hard day's work, sat in his chair and tilt his head because he was so tired?
User avatar #86 to #63 - Dember (11/17/2012) [-]
Hm, I personally saw it more as "getting complacent"?
If someone in a position of power was sitting on a throne while simply choosing to ignore the discomfort or suffering of those who are "inferior" to them, just because they're perched atop their lofty roost of a more favorable position and don't have to deal with such struggles themselves, they could grow even more desensitized and relaxed about it rather than actually doing anything to resolve it, and perhaps rest their head a bit too far back and wind up having the very "peasants" they have oppressed and neglected to aid, be their own downfall.
Apologies for an exceptionally run-on sentence, but that was a bit difficult to put into words, which is probably why it makes a better illustration instead.
Not saying my take is accurate or anything. That's just what I gathered.
User avatar #95 to #86 - beatmasterz ONLINE (11/17/2012) [-]
Even more poetic.
#57 to #51 - fecal (11/17/2012) [-]
yeah because the other ones are 100% scientifically accurate.
User avatar #58 to #57 - hemming (11/17/2012) [-]
It just seems odd...

on the other hand, the guy vacuum cleaning the scenery with his camera seemed normal

2: The man pats the cat on the head and feeds it, meaning he probably loves it, while having blood stains on his apron and a knife in his hand, meaning he slaughters the other animals. Kind of sad...

3: We're pressed to learn more and more everyday and everynight.

Great stuff, but can someone explain the one with the chinese people on the roof tops putting presents in the chimneys to me? I guess it has something to do with Communism, but I can't really make out what he is trying to say.
User avatar #33 to #32 - fukkentyranitar (11/17/2012) [-]
Chinese people are depicted as santa claus, they make the components for just about every electronic device on the market.

Ah, that makes sense. Thanks :)

I'm not big on art, I never really saw what's so great about art in general, since I think like a computer

But that was actually really neat

Even if it was racist in any way, this is the internet, it still wouldn't matter.

The king sits in luxury on the people that serve him. But they are the ones who decide if the king lives or dies. Only metaphor I can think of at the moment.

The people can support the government but also tear it down.
It's up to the people.

Do you mind explaining the farm animals one to me?
#38 to #23 - frylord (11/17/2012) [-]
Honestly what i was getting was we treat some animals better then we do eachother
User avatar #24 to #23 - jokeface (11/17/2012) [-]
Well, I'm not entirely sure I get i myself, but this was my interpretation. The housecat represents the people who don't do any work, and just get everything handed to them with little or no effort. The farm animals represent the hard workers who break their backs to make life easier for the rest of us, and in this picture the housecat is getting food that's being made from the farm animals, implying people of the upper class, or bourgeois, just sit around living off the expense of the lower class, or proletariat.
User avatar #31 to #24 - Loon (11/17/2012) [-]
I like that interpretation, but I also thought that it might simply be that it is odd how we take such good care of one type of animal, but brutally butcher and eat the others.
#26 to #24 - herefortheporno (11/17/2012) [-]
OOHHHH. I thought it was, he has to kill one to support the other, but that makes more sense, being that that's what all of his paintings are about.   
Thanks. Have this gif.
