The work depicts a nude man sitting on a rock. I thought it was a toilet but I am assured it is a rock.
He is seen leaning over, his right elbow placed on his left thigh, holding the weight of his chin on the back of his right hand. The pose is one of deep thought and contemplation. I thought it was constipation. But I am assured it is not so.
Let's consider the pose. It must be uncomfortable leaning forwards with your right elbow on your left thigh. Try it.
I did and fell off my chair bringing down the computer keyboard and mouse too.
Why not lean forwards naturally with your right elbow on your right thigh?
And why sit naked? It must be very cold on one's posterior sitting like that on a rock. And how about ants? Very uncomfortable, I should say, if they start hunting around about one's privacy.
But what intrigues me the most is, what is this man thinking about?
The cost of living? Global warming? Saving the planet? The rate of inflation? Interest rates? Or where the heck has he put his clothes?
