My mum is doing an art corse at the local polytech.
She made this piece and had to talk about it in front of the class, this is what she said:

"I call this piece 'Railspike and Three Horseshoes'. I assembled it from found objects. The spike and horse shoes are from St Andrews railway track and beach. The fabric is from our dress-up box and I found the frame in Jason's office. This work represents the coming of age of rail, subsequently signalling the end of importance for the horse. I thought about using four horseshoes but realised completing the pattern could be seen as unlucky for some. Also the three horseshoes symbolise a three-legged horse, i.e. something which has outlived its usefulness.
I have used the silk fabric and gilt frame to evoke a bygone era; a more genteel, less hectic time perhaps?"

And this is the picture:

I laughed so hard when I saw this, and then read what she wrote about it.
When she was talking to her class she kept a totally straight face and acted as if she didn't realise what word she had created.
Some people figured out what it was instantly, others took a long time, and more still COULDN'T figure it out and had to be told.

I love my mummy =)

I didnt really want to put the warning in the title, but I knew I had to, since there are kids as young as 13 on the site.
Hope it didnt spoil the picture any!

What does everyone think?

Your mom is awesome.  She seems like someone I'd really like to hang out with- and I wouldn't worry about the disclaimer spoiling anything- I didn't read your whole post and I *still* knew what it said!  Did anyone in the class comment? Wink

Let's swap.

The whole class just laughed, they loved it!

There was a girl in one of the other art classes that came in while everyone was out of the room and put a sign up next to it about how much the picture offended her, that was really funny too.

GeeZee, its one of my favourite words too!

Hahaha that's awesome Cheesy I love your mum's description of it. And that girl who got really offended by it clearly has no sense of humour, it's only a word!

Maybe its because I am a foreigner and English isnt my first language (usually I havent a problem understanding "foul" language though), but I dont get it. Can someone please enlighten me?

ETA: I got it now, sometimes all it takes is just a push in the right direction *lol*...

Oh my goodness, I love your mom. And I love how you posted what she said before the picture. After I read her explanation, I was afraid the joke went over my head too, but then the picture cracked me up. Hurray for powerful language (and humor) in art!
