Gaping Void: Beauty and the Abstract

I captured the figurine I had mentioned about in a previous post where this friend told me about this clay figurine she made when she was younger. She says that its ugly but spoke of it in a way which implied she likes it a lot. But she still maintains that its ugly. And that her mother likes it cause its a bit abstract. She had described the posture of the figurine and subtly implied why it took that pose, which made me wonder. She was just trying to make the figurine as close to reality as possible; it wasn't abstract; its just that reality turned out to be a bit abstract.

Either that or I'm suffering from a severe case of flatulence :-)
