    Nice! It’s the bodhidharma by way of “what would Homer look like if he were real”.

    Wow, that’s already a lot more effective on the comments page, must be something else in person.

    Actually, that pic is highly reminiscent of the smiling giant used by the group Gentle Giant.

    Check Mr. Hyung’s Dali.  I was not aware until I did myself that a) Dali (eventually?) curled his sideburns too – so I burrowed, and found – b) that Dali lived to 85,  c) that Lorca was under the age of (modern-American) consent during their (fling)?  Is my math right?  And that c) the elder Dali (like ‘older’, not elder to Lorca), cinched his hetero with the following gem: “I was extremely annoyed, because I wasn’t homosexual, and I wasn’t interested in giving in.  Besides it hurts.  So nothing came of it.”  It’s unfair to speak for the dead, I suppose.  Maybe Dali had previously hurt himself.  Maybe Lorca hurt him for the first time.  To my understanding, Dali would intentionally fall asleep in precarious chairs for the sake of art.  So I can’t really tell whether it was art or lust.  I mean, the dude’s famous for NOT having a beard.   :) Thanks BB for a brilliant rabbit hole!
