    Rodin's Detritus

    Unknowns to most people, Terry Pratchett's Detritus was Rodin's first choice for the thinker sculpture.

    It didn't work out since Detritus kept complaining that 'All dem thinkin hurt muh hed'.


    Pencil.

    Note: The crotch is nicely in shadow for three reasons:
    #1. If it was anatomically correct I'd have to put this up in After'9
    #2. Having seen only photographs of the the original sculpture (which are usually from the sideview) I am unsure as to whether any detailing is required or not.
    #3. Most importantly, I didn't even want to try and imagine what Troll genitalia would look like!

    Loads of fun and a skillfulpiece of art as well. Nicely done and tastefully non-detailed in the nether regions...

    On a side note, Pratchett is quite a character; I had the opportunity to meet him at WorldCon (a major science fiction/fantasy convention) in Boston several years ago (as I recall, he was Guest of Honor).

    Love it! Love Pratchett! I think that "Nation" is one of the best books I've read in a long, long time.
