I saw this in a museum in D.C. and it blew mind... my Wendell Castle born Emporia, KS 1932; resides Scottsville, NY Ghost Clock 1985 bleached Honduras mahogany and stain Smithsonian American Art Museum, Museum purchase through the Smithsonian Institution Collections Acquisition Program, 1989.68 At first glance, Ghost Clock appears to be a grandfather clock hidden by a large white sheet tied with a rope. A closer look, however, reveals a masterful deception: this entire sculpture was hand-carved from a single block of laminated mahogany. With meticulous detail, Castle re-created in wood the contours of soft, supple cloth, then completed the illusion by bleaching the "drapery" white and staining the base of the "clock" a walnut brown. This work is the last in a series of thirteen clocks the artist created in the 1980s; unlike the others, it lacks an inner mechanism. Its haunting stillness and silence suggest eternity-the absence of time. white-throated-packrat: ungodlyobsessions: moistnoodles: i-march-mello: danim4ux: THE SHEET IS MADE OUT OF WOOD TOO Wendell Castle, Ghost Clock. 1985 THAT IS MAHOGANY I thought this was a joke until I read the description WHAT HTE FCUK It’s one of my favorite pieces at the Renwick.

BREAKING NEWS!!! RINGLING BROS SAYS NO MORE CIRCUS!!!!!! It ends in May!✨ No news yet on where the animals will go, but this is huge news! ✨See the letter from the CEO from ringlingbros.com ▪️ "Feld Entertainment Announces Final Performances of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Circus in May 2017" "Ellenton, Fla. – January 14, 2017 – Feld Entertainment Inc., parent company of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® and the world’s largest producer of live family entertainment, announced today that the iconic 146-year-old circus would hold its final performances later this year. Ringling Bros.®’ two circus units will conclude their tours with their final shows at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, R.I., on May 7, and at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, N.Y., on May 21, 2017. The decision to end the circus tours was made as a result of high costs coupled with a decline in ticket sales, making the circus an unsustainable business for the company. Following the transition of the elephants off the circus, the company saw a decline in ticket sales greater than could have been anticipated." BOYCOTTCIRCUS WEDIDIT OURVOICESHEARD BOYCOTTCIRCUS @christylee787 @protect.animals.worldwide @boycottcircus @blackjaguarwhitetiger: A N N O U N C E S CLOSING DOWN THE CIRCUS A message from Kenneth Feld, chairman and CEO of Feld Entertainment, the producer of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey After much evaluation and deliberation, my family and I have made the difficult business decision that Ringing Bros. and Bamum & Bailey will hold its final performances in May of this year. Ringing Bros. ticket sales have been declining, but following the transition of the elephants off the road, we saw an even more dramatic drop. This, coupled with high operating costs, made the circus an unsustainable business for the company. Nearly 50 years ago, my father founded our company with the acquisition of Ringling Bros The circus and its people have continually been a source of inspiration and joy to my family and me, which is why this was such a tough business decision to make. The decision was even more difficult because of the amazing fans that have become part of our extended circus famity over the years, and we are extremely grateful to the millions of familes who have made Ringling Bros part of their lives for generations. We know Ringling Bros. isn't cnly our family business, but also your family tradition. ng Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Presents Circus XTREME wil conclude its tour at the Dunkin' Donuts Center in Providence, RIL, on May 7, 2017, and Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Presents out of This World will conclude its tour at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, NY, on May 21, 2017, We you wa come to celebrate this American icon for one last time before our tours conclude. r company provides quality, live family entertainment, and we invite you to bring your family to one of our other ents, including Marvel Universe LIVE!. Monster Jam, Monster Energy Supercross, AMSOIL Arenactoss, Disney On Ice and Disney Live as well as future productions. or all of live entertainment produced at Feld tertainment. We learned from the circus, and applied those learnings to our other productions. Without Ringling Bros., we wouldn't have the vibrant live entertainment company that we have today. Ringiing Bros. will always be part of Feld Entertainment and its spirit will live on in every production and project we do. BREAKING NEWS!!! RINGLING BROS SAYS NO MORE CIRCUS!!!!!!
