The Girlfriend and I just got back from San Fran. / Oakland late last night. I'll have pics / posts soon. Unfortunately we flew...so I wasn't able to bring hardly anything home. Just pictures. Oddly enough...this GIANT angel sculpture by Whoopi Golderg and painted by Shag was HERE in St. Louis...not California!
I just find that odd. And for it to be listed on craigslist...huh?!?! That's just weird. In case the ad disappears --
"Sculpture by Shag/Whoopi Goldberg - $14999 (Downtown St. Louis)
This collaboration between Whoopi Goldberg and artist Josh Agle "Shag" depicts a humorous apocalyptic battle with blue heaven at the top and red flames at the bottom of the 6'4" angel sculpture. Vignettes of temptation and miracles, featuring Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Marilyn Monroe, Steve McQueen, Alfred Hitchcock, and even Whoopi herself, are strategically placed on the wings of the figure. Additionally, sixteen angelic white cats and fifteen demonic black cats, each bearing a name, complete the theme.
The sculpture was part of the Los Angeles "Community of Angels" project in 2001-02, and stood in front of Virgin Records on Sunset Boulevard. It was later restored by Shag himself, and includes a certificate of authenticity."
I love Shag and Whoopi was great in Ghost but I don't know...a full scale custom painted angel? Any takers?
