Dear PoP – How Do You and Your Readers Interpret This Sculpture?

DSCN0314, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

“Dear PoP,

I like your posts on sculptures in front of buildings and homes around DC. There is one abstract sculpture that has frequently piqued my interest, because I can’t figure out what it is supposed to represent. It’s near Dupont on Hopkins Street, which is one of those little side streets that’s only one block long.

My best interpretation is: headless orange giraffe. I suppose it can be the mark of good art that this sculpture defies definition and makes the viewer think. But if you’re looking for more sculptures to post about, I am curious how you and your readers would interpret this sculptural Rorschach test.”

Hmm, I’m gonna say this sculpture reminds me of a dancer. What do you guys think? Does it speak to you?
