The beauty of human creation

Post by พงษ์ทอง ตั้งวณิชเศรษฐ์.

When I see things like this it helps ingrain in me the true beauty of the human animal.  It must have taken many hours of labor time to create such beauty and precision.  He is rewarded for it by the praise from the audience and their voluntary contributions to him for the effort. Compare it to the garbage on their mass media, the mindless talk shows, the moronic misnamed reality TV.

We are all part of this as humans, we all have talents in one form or another that are trapped inside us, unable to be set free due to the stifling constrictions of the market. This is art, not art for money's sake, but art for the shear beauty of it. Good thing the Pentagon hasn't bombed them yet.
