Medusa Plate — Vik Muniz
From the Museum of Modern Art Store website: "Vik Muniz is known for using materials like wire, sugar, dirt, and chocolate sauce to create images that he then photographs. This Medusa Plate, a 1999 design, features an image of Muniz's recreation of Caravaggio's Medusa (1590, Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence) rendered in pasta marinara. It can be displayed or used as a serving dish, allowing the Medusa image to be revealed as food is removed."
Back story here.
The winner of the "What is it?" contest and a shipment of Party G1rl Lollipops direct from Jason Darling's mother ship is... not yet determined.
Because entries continue to come in (FunFact: not all entries appear in the Comments section; in fact, that has never ever been a condition of entering any contest here nor will it ever be. But I digress), some of which are so funny and yet so unsuitable for sharing in a family-friendly forum such as this that I can only laugh along with Gray Cat.
Note added at 4:49 a.m. Thursday, October 24: After deliberating in closed session, we have a winner: Avogadro, a.k.a. 6.02*10^23, for "The last unhappy customer at a David Chang restaurant."
Prize to be dispatched as soon as you let me know where you'd like it sent.
