Burning Man Sculpture Defaced In Honor Of Halloween?
Yup, it’s the same sculpture from Burning Man Sculpture Defaced In Honor Of Burning Man, where back in early september the public installation by Dan Das Mann near the Ferry Building was affixed with a bong and lighter. This time, someone gave them Abu Ghraib costumes. Are these everyone’s favorite sculptures to prank? This one’s sure to offend lots of people, but I can’t help thinking of this in humorous reference to (The Seattle Stranger’s) children’s Abu Ghraib Halloween costumes that made the internet rounds back in 2004.

Update: Scott posted this at Laughing Squid (with more description) and points out to me that it’s not just Dan Das Mann’s sculpture but it was also created by Karen Cusolito. Not knowing either of them, I only went by the name I saw in the last post’s comments. Sorry Karen!
