      I concur wholeheartedly.
      The base says, "This is officially sculpture."
      The bends in the uprights and in the cross pieces are pretty clearly
      more about aesthetics than function.
      The 'bolt heads' are not conventional.
      The fact that the original image was _huge_ also suggests that it is
      Art. Were it a butt, a much smaller image would suffice as a record.

      The artist was dealing with crystalizing basic plastic organic unity and
      that whole thing.

      Aut invenian viam aut faciam.
