Happy Birthday, Rodin!

By Twistie

Today marks the one hundred seventy-second birthday of Auguste Rodin, the great sculptor. In his honor, I thought it might be fun to see some of the unusual and crafty ways his most famous sculpture, The Thinker, has been interpreted over the years.

Here he is presented in packing tape. As an added bonus, all the students and teachers in the school district wrote down thoughts on slips of paper which were worked into the sculpture.

He’s been tattooed into flesh,

… printed on tee shirts, like this one available at Zazzle,

built with Legos,

… and carved out of ice.

Sometimes it’s fun to reinterpret a great work of art in more humble materials.

In fact, I’m thinking it’s time to make him a needlefelted sculpture. That way he could be cuddly.

Happy birthday, Auguste Rodin!
