Madoff The Failed Matador (Photo & Sculpture)

Did you hear the one about the guy who stole $20 billion and then had his ass perforated by a bronze bull?

From the BBC

Chinese artist Chen Wenling critiques the global financial crisis in What You See Might Not Be Real, on display at a Beijing gallery. The bull is said to represent Wall Street, while the man pinned to the wall represents jailed financier Bernard Madoff.

Hmm ... it was a rampaging bear, not a rocketing bull, that ripped Madoff a new orifice and brought his demise. Mr Chen could have more accurately depicted Madoff reaming one of his bull believing clients.

The bull could also represent the art market, while the man pinned to the wall could represent the art collector, isn't it?

Thomas Jefferson on Bankers
“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them (around the banks), will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.” -
Thomas Jefferson
I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing
power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.

—Thomas Jefferson, 1802

“Paper is poverty,… it is only the ghost of money, and not money itself.” –Thomas Jefferson to Edward Carrington, 1788.

“Experience has proved to us that a dollar of silver disappears for every dollar of paper emitted.” -Thomas Jefferson to James Monroe, 1791.

“The trifling economy of paper, as a cheaper medium, or its convenience for transmission, weighs nothing in opposition to the advantages of the precious metals… it is liable to be abused, has been, is, and forever will be abused, in every country in which it is permitted.”–Thomas Jefferson to John W. Eppes, 1813.

The jet of BS propells the bull which impales the bull-spewing conman. Hoisted on his own petard as it were. I guess it's good art if it makes you think.

That should be David Rockefeller up there.

Madoff is just a patsy.

He'd tell you himself but the Rockefeller satanists would probably kill his entire family, so he'll take his jail time and cancer AND LIKE IT.
