Is it perspective or is his head meant to look so big?

I think thats a really powerfull sculpture. I really repsect the artist for going through with this, I think it's really effective.

When I look at that sculpture, the first thing that comes to mind is, Hitler for a brief moment thought..
"my god, what have I done"

that or, wow my head is really big !!

Works of art like that shouldn't be interpreted literally. I'm sure that there is some sort of hidden meaning behind it. The name "Him" for example, wonder what it really means...

It's interesting tha the piece is dicplayed in a museum that he ordered to be built. Also kinda ironic too, having a work of art that slams him in a museum of his own doing.


I'm sure that the artist had to undergo alot of controversy while he was sculpting the piece, but yet, he still went for it. Very impressive.

I'm surprised you, of all people, didn't go for the obvious there...
ya know, considering he's KNEELING.

I wonder how long before someone defaces/damages/destroys that statue. I imagine not many people would buy the contrition that seems to be implied by the posture & facial expression.

Without incriminating myself too much I have to say that the natural opponents of Hitler have probably shot themselves in the foot on this one.

Their desire to belittle him has only worked to increase interest in him and what he was about.

I am not a fan but I am not a hypocrite either.
