Cotswold Life



I believe this quaint Cotswold carving is a ritual object, probably involving the drinking of spirits. However, judging from the number of agricultural students in the area, there may well have been a sudden epidemic of Kochdropov's Syndrome at Cirencester Casualty this morning.

Strange though, all the children wandering about... "What's that lady, mummy?" It shouldn't be allowed, I tell you!

Update! News just in! Conflicting reports of an obscene vodka luge have been categorically denied. Apparently the said sculpture 'evokes' the Transitory Nature of Form and the Ideal Hegelian Gullet.

I Googled Kochdropov's Syndrome and was instantly referred back to your pic! Was I just being gullable!?!
Is it carved from ice btw?
I'm not sure about the 'Hegelian gullet' meself - can't see much evidence of a dialectic working through that brief tube. Appears more like the old 'Tiny Tears' apparatus - administer liquid and watch in trickle out down below.
You're just avin' a larf ain't you!!?
K.x

Yes, it was ice. In was in the pub garden, looking rather ravaged. I expect some post twerp ordered it for a birthday party.

Larfs are necessary - think of it as an offering from the Abysmal Light Entertainment Dept.

lol @ googling kochdropov's!
