Giant Italian Skeleton

The photos show a giant skeleton lying on display in a town square, recalling that photo of a giant skeleton supposedly unearthed in Saudi Arabia that circulated around a few years ago. (It was actually an image from a Worth1000 photoshop contest.)

In this case, the giant skeleton is not a product of photoshop. It's a real skeleton, in the sense that it's something that one can really go and see. However, it's not real in the sense of being an actual archeological artifact. It's a piece of art created by the Late Gino De Dominicis. It's titled "COSMIC MAGNET." It's currently on display in Milan, and then will tour throughout Europe.

The Google translation of a blurb about the piece says:
The body of Cosmic Calamita, marking the possible connections between microcosm and the macrocosmos, evokes inaccessible spaces to the progress and the technology, reaching to the myth and the night of the times. Landed on our planet in disowned circumstances, this colossal Moby Dick projects the spectators ammutoliti on the mystery of elsewhere beyond the land space and a time of the history becoming some the terrifying one to cerimoniere.

That's so cool! I love how it's going on tour - it seems so bovine in a way 😉
