Dumb and Ugly

This unknown artifact was uncovered from what appears to be the early twenty-first century. From the looks of it the intent seems to have been to create the most dumb and ugly sculpture possible. The monochromatic color scheme suggests a drab and lifeless side of the time period, yet the artist uses the lively image of each individual appendage to represent hope for what is yet to come. The vertically projected piece seems to be "staring" in one direction but the serpent-like sculpture seems to be moving in a direction away from it, suggesting possible change or a demand to branch off from the norm, much which had been occurring during the time period.
