Odd...what's that all about? I mean, it's interesting, but is the artist trying to talk about commercialization?

I tihnk there's a load of slightly pretentious blurb about the picture in the gallery section of their site.

I just like their style...I'm a sucker for that indian artwork, I think it's even cooler when it's got a contempory slant on it. They did a re-working of the Liverpool coat of arms for our 2008 Capital of Culture year.

bit weird how the ram(gridiron) ends up having elephant feet (rugby, clearly the all blacks - listen to the heads swell)......omg.... I just realised both sports are represented as elephants

I can't say that I like it at all, although having looked at the gallery there's some really good ones on there

I'd like this one. There's a small church in the South-West of France called Notre-Dame de Rugby. I visited it some tyears ago. There are many items given by famous Rugby players. There's pelerinage once a year with a mess to pray for saving the souls and bodies of all the Rugbymen.

It's in the Landes county close to Mont de Marsan in a village called Larrivière which is at 15 km. Lourdes is closer to Pau, it's at approximately 120 km, so it's between 1h30 and 2h driving distance.

Here a footage about the last pelerinage: http://13h.tf1.fr/13h/series/0,,3461345,00...ns-landes-.html

Yeah that's what I spotted out too when I saw it but yes again it's the philosophy behind the artwork.
