"Bust of a Young Man and Bust of a Man"

Ken Gonzales-Day, Olympic Boulevard west of Gramercy Place, Los Angeles, February-March 2010. Part of "How Many Billboards? Art in Stead" temporary project organized by the MAK Center for Art and Architecture.

"His subjects, Bust of a Young Man (bronze with silver inlay eyes, by the Italian artist Antico) and Bust of a Man (black stone-pietra da paragone, Florence 1758, by the Englishman Francis Harwood), are owned by the J. Paul Getty Museum....a Photoshop composite of the figures facing each other ignites an erotic charge as they stare into one another's eyes." - text from a longer description by Nizan Shaked, http://www.howmanybillboards.org/, accessed 03/2010.
