The Denver Post hosts a photo and description of the giant new Mustang that now sits on the road to Denver International Airport. “Denver officials commissioned ‘Mustang’ from [sculptor Luis] Jimenez in 1992,” the Post reports.
My first reaction to the sculpture was that it’s “repugnant.” My wife said, “It looks like it’s possessed.”
My wife’s view seems to be a common one. On a separate blog post, the Post includes a number of comments about the piece that are almost entirely negative. Here are the highlights: “diabolical,” “hideous,” “a demon horse… melt it down,” “truly horrifying,” “looked better when it was wrapped in plastic,” “waste of tax payer money… beautiful if you are a satan follower,” “more appropriate in a horror type theme park,” “a debacle,” “an embarrasment to Colorado,” “likely to give children nightmares.”
