Traffic Stopping Art (number 9)


The guy immortalised on the box is the former premier of Queensland, Peter Beattie. He was premier here for 9 years up until 2007 and is something of an institution in Queensland politics. He once described himself as a "media tart" which leads me to wonder if maybe he commissioned this box himself.
What's that on top of the box, you say? A used nylon stocking, of course...

I like that term, "Media Tart." I also like the box.

Cool art. Hope you are safe from the flooding at present.

Thanks for your concern, Mo - we're pretty lucky here in Brisbane. The monsoonal floods are in the north of the state about 1200kms north of here and the fires are 1600kms south.
