Robert Gober Untitled 1991
This portrait is by Robert Gober and its lack of a title is very interesting, because it looks like a normal mans lower body but then you see there are candles coming out of various parts of his lower extremities. Gober used Wood, beeswax, leather, fabric and human hair to make this. It is currently at the MoMA museum. I chose this sculpture because of the oddities that it possesses, where is the rest of this "man" and what do the candles represent. There are so many questions and interpretations which is one thing I love about modern art.
