Someone’s played way too much tetris

Walking the Kelpie of Few Accomplishments in Haig Park this morning we came across this oddity.

The thing about art is it really needs a plaque.

Nah i think it’s just a couple of stoners from Northbourne flats who thought lets get some stones and keep piling them up lego style and maybe someone will take a photo which will end up on social media and will bring out all the clever punny people.Worked a bloody trick or treat didn’t it? 🙂

There be no-one clever ’round these parts, guvnor.

Just rabbits, pigs and Tasmanian devils out for a wee frolic. And one man with no face from parts down South. He be called ‘Default’.

I’d say that some bright spark ran into one of the brick walls at the Northbourne flats and one of the many druids that reside there (we’ll call him default) thought i’m gonna build me a henge with a little help from some haig.

Did they go through the ACTPLA approval process before commencing construction?
And yes, I know Katy changed the stationery at ACTPLA to something more sustainable…

Everyone wants their own henge these days…

I’ve already got one….

Keeping up with the Druids, are we?

I thought a henge was one of those Islander party gigs where they bury a pig in the ground and barbecue it for three days then eat it and drink for another three days. That sounds like a helluva lot more fun than this type of henge.

Hungi man, but close.

One can easily mix up pigs being BBQed in the hole in the ground and huge sarcen stones magically transported by Merlin to an atmospheric plains somewhere near Salisbury.

A mistake anyone could make. 🙂

I reckon so. I used to work with a Maori bloke who did a few of the pig gigs, and all his vowels were contracted to nothingness so Henge and Hungi would’ve both been pronounced H’ngi (bro).

Anyway, I stand corrected. You learn something new everyday. 🙂

And, because there can never ever be enough correction; it’s spelt Hangi.

Looking at the item in question again, I think it is actually a dog trap:

1. Dog thinks ‘Wow, I must pee on that!’

2. In peeing, dog knocks trap.

3. Stones fall on dog and kill it.

If one looks closely, it is possible to see the ear of a chihuahua who was flattened earlier under one of the fallen rocks. There are some very sick individuals in our community.

SO it’s a male dog crusher?

Or crusher of male dogs?

It pretty much looks like the other ‘art’ placed all over Canberra.

You’d have to be stoned to create that henge.

I’d say that would fall somewhere between moron and retard 🙂

Don’t laugh – that ‘art’ probably cost us taxpayers at least $80,000

yes, but is it art?

I wonder when it will need to be taken down and have the correct paint added?
