One does indeed wonder what it was that prompted the carver, in his design of that carving.

Perhaps it was simply a prank, to defile the sanctity of the church that he was hired to help build.. I had wanted Alf to reply to my last inquiry to him, before moving forward into that, tho.

Where can this church be found? In England?

All Saints Church in Hereford, England, from what I read.

The church was built in the 1300's but the carving was only noticed when an additional floor was added (for a restaurant, I think) and this was discovered that during the restoration. I wonder if it supposed to tell us something about the church's priest?... or perhaps the sculptor was saying he was fucked over by the church?... or he might have tripped -- almost falling to his death -- and saw this I'm-fucked-image flash past him?

Maybe - but really just maybe - the one you call „the church's priest“ wanted it that way himself (?). :-k

Gargoyles and Grotesques? not all Olde artistic creations are beautiful, but I appreciate and admire them none-the-less.

Bigger structures.. like buildings and cities, are more difficult to hide One’s distaste over.. I’m quite un-keen on the design of the UAE cities and states.. far too arrogantly-opulent for my more ‘pared down’ tastes.

Gargoyles and Grotesques are expressions before modern times and therefore fine.

I completely agree with what you said about the "design" of the UAE.

I guess the reasons behind Architecture/Art/Design, change over time/with the passing millennia, centuries, and decades.. the natural, being replaced by man-made technological materials.

You will probably find very artful times and nearly artless times between them , won't you?

The "painter" or "painters" of the first "painting" probably did not know anything about art. The (de)constructor(s) of what you can see in the second picture know only destruction, know nothing more of art. We live in decadent times.

One often wonders whether there are any artists left at all.

"Creative destruction" is what the "transhumanist" Klaus Schwab, who founded the "World Economic Forum" in 1971, calls the destruction of that which we Westerners have built up, but with it proportionately also that which the financial system dominating the world and thus also Klaus Schwab himself, who supports it, have built up. What is indicated in the systems of finance, economy, jurisdiction and politics is also indicated in art. "Creative destruction" therefore does not coincidentally go hand in hand with the art movement "de(con)structivism". And as the latter tramples on art or what is left of it, so do those with money, trade, the business of medium-sized companies, laws, etc.. And - as I have already announced so often since April 2001 in the Internet: at the end about 0.0000001-0.001% humans are to remain as powerful ones, so to speak as "superhumans", and consequently 999.999-99.99999% humans as slaves, so to speak as "subhumans". As if all this would not be already cynical and misanthropic enough, Klaus Schwab calls this goal also still completely openly "transhumanism". He seems to be sure of his cause, even believes that this madness will be realized already in 2030. Schwab not only wants to expropriate us, i.e. not only to abolish our property, but even to abolish our possessions, i.e. to abolish us, because he who cannot possess cannot exist. Property is legally secured, but possession is not, because possession is only given purely factually, and existentially.

I love this one.
It's unusual in that Thomas Brock was an otherwise unremarkable jobbing sculptor doing pretty standard public monuments.
This sculpture of "Eve" is well observed and rather precocious.
She's one of my favourites
