According to the photographer’s caption on flickr, this grotesque can be found at the City Museum in St. Louis, Missouri. Not being familiar with that particular institution but assuming it was an art museum, I searched online to figure out if this carving is a feature of the building or part of its collection. Instead, I learned that the City Museum is a “an eclectic mixture of children’s playground, funhouse, surrealistic pavilion, and architectural marvel made out of unique, found objects”.* In other words, it seems to be a big kids’ version of a children’s museum. How cool is that? I’ve never been to St. Louis, but this place will certainly be on my agenda if I ever decide to visit.
