At first I thought the silver thing was a hot water heater blanket...too shiny.
Definitely not a hot water blanket.
Lots of shiny materials in the photo...almost obsessively shiny...the copper fabric on the back wall, the silver material with clip, the satiny white material hanging down, the gold material on the monkey itself.
Other shiny things - christmas lights, lamp (or altar candle?) in background.
And what the heck is on the back wall, wings?
Looks like Victoria Secret promo wings, which wouldn't surprise me in the least. Or an art project of some kind. ;)
Now that I look at it , it might be a backstage area, not a basement. Looks like a bunch of stuff left over from a play.
You think? That is an interesting theory. There is the quarter circle of texture obviously chopped into the photo. What could it be hiding? Also, there are other items on that back table.
What is the silver material partitioning?
I still want to know why he has a bucket over the monkeys head.
The bucket either looks like the top to a 100 spindle pack of CDs, a hot & sour soup container (very large one, though...bulk almost).
What is the obsession with tape? Tape around the clear bucket? Duct tape?
Is it possible that the clear plastic thing is just a space helmut?
Could you imagine if ARGH did drugs?
