Headless plinth stands on its own merit

LONDON, England (AP) -- Like most British artists, David Hensel thought that the opportunity to exhibit at the Royal Academy's prestigious summer exhibition would send his career soaring.

Instead, the 61-year-old sculptor was bemused to find that his laughing human head has been left out of the exhibit. All that is on display is its plinth.

Officials said Hensel had submitted the head and the plinth separately -- and they had preferred the plinth.

"The base was thought to have merit and accepted; it is currently on display," the Royal Academy said in a statement. "The head has been safely stored ready to be collected by the artist."

The Academy held out hope that the head may ultimately be exhibited, and said Thursday that curators still have to make a final decision.

Hensel took it in stride.

"I've seen the funny side, but I've also seen the philosophical side. ... It shows up not just the tastes of the selectors but also their unawareness," said Hensel, who belongs to the Royal British Society of Sculptors and teaches sculpture at University College in Chichester, southern England.

The head, which is carved from jesmonite, took Hensel two months to create. The plinth, cut from an old mortuary slab, took one day.

"I submitted the thing as one sculpture but the bits weren't bolted together so they must have become separated," Hensel said. "I like the plinth as an object. I just never thought of it as a sculpture in its own right.

"What pleases me, though, is that it gives a lot of people the chance to think about what art is."

My kids were out on the 13th. Teachers just have one more week. Work week. We are moving to a new building next year, so lots of extra stuff to do. I am also the IT person at school, so next big project starts tomorrow.

Not using the walker any longer, but still walking bent over. And not walking far. A couple more days and it should be better.

Edit: Thanks for asking.

That is the pits. Any exercises you can do when it is feeling OK that could help? Or are you just stuck with it?

I have a feeling I'm just stuck with it because it's nothing strenuous that ever causes it. I need to talk to the doctor more in-depth about it.

Feel better. Back are so weird.
I'll talk to you tomorrow! Going to sleep, in my own bed! No surf sounds, but I will survive.
Ride home had sun, thunder and lighting, rainbows, cold and heat!

You may have tried this, may not apply, or you may just not want advise on it, but I had a pretty severe back injury in highschool. One of my friends jumped into my back from behind and relocated one of my vertebrae. I couldn't walk. It was a chiropractor who got me up and moving again, and I still go to one to keep that area in line.

He's a real nowhere Man,
Sitting in his Nowhere Land,
Making all his nowhere plans
for nobody.

Doesn't have a point of view,
Knows not where he's going to,
Isn't he a bit like you and me?
Nowhere Man, please listen,
You don't know what you're missing,
Nowhere Man, the world is at your command.

He's as blind as he can be,
Just sees what he wants to see,
Nowhere Man can you see me at all?
Nowhere Man, don't worry,
Take your time, don't hurry,
Leave it all till somebody else
lends you a hand.
