Hey, Australians, do you have to raise taxes in order to pay schoolteachers?
An Australian artist has created a rock sculpture in the shape of an egg that resides in a remote section of one of Australia’s national parks.
…which in time will essentially disappear once it has been grown over by strangler fig.
It’s going to disappear! And the best part:
…the Department of Environment and Resource Management has paid the artist, Andy Goldsworthy, more than $700,000 for the creation, entitled “Strangler Cairn.”
Seven hundred grand for a sculpture that almost nobody will ever see even before it disappears inside a bush!
Hell, I’ll build a temporary egg-like sculpture out of smaller rocks for half that. And I’ll pay my own airfare!
