Boy Without Crab

The King saw this on The Barrio, Fitzgerald Street, (FITZ gerald meaning bastard son of Gerald)  – what appears to be a crabless Boy with Crab by Giovanni Demartino. One assumes the boy’s ringhole is to be connected to the mains in another improvement on the original? Lose the crab but power the back door. Yes! The crab would be, what negative space? No, maybe not. But it is something grand. Removing the crab and powering the backside is a kind of genius you would never see on Beaufort Street arrondissement.crabless1

    I’m not sure which scares me worse. Peel safety or this. Do you guys have a M+15 rating. I just shit my pants.


  2. Giles Farmer says:

    Perhaps he’s just returned from one of the houses of ill repute just down the road. So the sculpture really should be entitled “Boy with crabs”


  3. Misspent yoof says:

    The sculptor has been commissioned to do another piece in the series as well. To be positioned near the Mandurah foreshore, it will be titled “single mum with crabs”.


  4. I hope therewill be some kind of tedious “community enhancement” as with other pieces. A soiled nappy would work well here.
