Beached Whale Stranded in Argentinian Forest

Adrián Villar Rojas - My Family Dead

One can’t help but feel disturbed by the image of a whale stranded on land, laying in pain, feeling utterly helpless as it slowly dies. My Family Dead is the title of this whale sculpture created by Argentina-based artist Adrián Villar Rojas in the spring of 2009.  The piece was made for the Biennial of the End of the World, which challenged artists to focus on the relationship between mankind and climate, and its threatening effects. The enormous sculpture, consisting of wood, clay, and rocks, is 28 meters long and sits in the middle of the Bosque Yatana forest in Ushuaia, Argentina.

Well, I likely goofed up my snoozing schedule. Slept like a log to get rid of the pain, but it was for a good couple hours. Hours that, oh, might be too early for me to snooze.

The silverette muttered some while running a hand through his short hair, trying to make it look a lot less like a spiky-beadhed attack, and more like his usual hair. He walked off to his bathroom to at least comb the damn thing.

Looks like I’ll be up longer than usual.

At least his headache and sides were feeling better, the sides from a recent mission and his headache from people. It’s gone now at least.
