Here's something you don't see every day--a giant metal head with a tiny figure balancing on top. It's called "Miss Mao Trying to Poise Herself at the Top of Lenin's Head." It was installed in downtown Richmond a few weeks ago.
Gao Zhen and Gao Qiang.
It is here as part of the Vancouver Sculpture Biennale.
It has already been vandalized at least once. Someone painted a skull & crossbones on it. That was cleaned off. In the picture above you may be able to see a bunch of cut flowers placed against its base, a more subtle commentary.
