frighteningly familiar

When I was a kid, there was a particular art piece in my house that scared me. It sat in the family room on top of a speaker and I used to avoid it at all costs, opting to blast my Janet Jackson cds in my bedroom instead. In all fairness, it just looked like a screaming man to me. A screaming, scary man. I wondered why my dad would make such a thing – such a dark piece for such a positive guy.

It was only a couple of years ago that I finally told my dad how much the piece scared me. Apparently, I was dead wrong. The man wasn’t screaming at all. He’s singing. I’m happy to say that it’s officially my favourite piece of art, and probably my favourite thing.

  1. whoa! I’d be pretty scared of that piece of art too.. good to know it’s singing.. I see what you mean by thinking its screaming.. It looks like it’s in pain.
