The Walking Man

Is this an omen? Is this the year of the Walking Man? Today's big news in the art world is that the new record price for a work of art at auction is the $104.3 Million paid for the Giacometti sculpture "l'homme qui marche" - "The Walking Man".

There are people in the Puivert area who know me by that soubriquet - not to mention thousands of followers of this blog.

Interesting to see that there is also a Rodin sculpture of the same name, not to mention a James Taylor album.

Let's hope that the success of the Giacometti walking man carries over into Vic's Big Walk and its associated fund-raising for Pancreatic Cancer research.
