who’s the big green dude?



The Thinker by Rodin (Wikipedia)



A contemplative philosopher?

intense, that’s for sure

(notice the curled toes)

but perhaps he’s a…


defeated athlete

flexing male model

confused caveman

rejected lover

famous architect

benched ball player

death row inmate

taxed accountant

jolly green giant


whoever he is,

he’s gotta be thinking…

where did I leave my clothes??

    Ha, I really like your take. I never pondered this Rodin before, but you definitely have me thinking! I like all of your speculations and will never see ‘The Thinker’ in the same way again!

    Ha.. yes he can seem a little bit bare.. when I googled for the thinker I saw a wonderful picture where he had a coat of snow.. but I recon that is not making him less frozen.. the curled toes was definitely a nice detail

    of no bounds…in his….thinking…
    curled toes…def adds to my theory about him…ha…
