    This is not BS, this is AWESOME.

    "What You see Might Not Be Real," by Chen Wenling depicts the Ponzi schemer as a devil, horns and all.
    The bull, which represents Wall Street, is farting because in Chinese "放屁" (fang pi) literally means to fart, but in slang means to bluff or lie.

    This guy's artwork is nuts. He had an art piece at Millenium Park in Chicago when I was showing some SB'ers around Chicago. Here are some pictures stolen from Kirkland's blog:

    I love this guy's work in general. My best bud has a sculpture
    by him depicting the fat man with the glasses riding a pig while wielding a hatchet. It's insane ... I'll see if I can
    get some photos.

    EDIT: My friend's is the all-white version. It's really something "in person." Some of the very best contemporary art is coming from Asia these days. That's been true for years, now. I find new art from China especially fascinating because so many young artists have so much to say, but have to do it within the parameters of what's allowed by Beijing lest they endure censorship or worse. However, it's amazing what they can "get away with" via metaphor. Reminds me a lot of the great artists who tried to express themselves under the Soviet thumbscrews.

    That rules. The shoes on the ground made me pee a little.
