- What is this thing on the wall in the pub?
only reason I know what that thing is is cos when I were an art student a mate bought some for his Vanitas paintings from a wierd local antique shop. also in these paintings was a very dead Tope (mini shark) from the fish counter in ASDA where his bro’ used to work and they had a special display at the time or something and wanted rid of the thing.. he put it in his Vanitas “death things” still life display and painted from it all summer. It started to stink. to the point where he had to get rid. I got called in like a Harvey Keitel Mr Wolf type “cleaner” to help “dissapear” the stinky rotting fishy tope mess. We hauled it out the studio, got a few yards out the studio, down the hill, and threw it in a hedge. It stank the narrow road up to his studio for months. And even now, when I cycle up that narrow little road, I’m sure there is a mini shark skeleton hidden in that hedge. God knows what future paleontologists will make of that one.Posted 4 years ago
