Okay, so it is not actually supposed to be a giant baby, but it certainly looks like one. This 25 foot statue, which will tower over Rockefeller Center, is a piece of “art” created by Black “artist” Sanford Biggers to “honor African culture.”
Is the big baby bearing the torch of civilization? Is he a modern Prometheus? Menahan writes that “it looks like a giant baby holding a rattle.” “Is that Lebron James” – Michael Difensore
The funny thing about it is that it exaggerates the physiognomy of Africans to the point that it almost looks like an old Looney Tunes caricature.
The statue is grotesque. It will likely induce feelings of nausea and disdain in anyone with a critical eye for art, but this is the case with most pieces produced for mass consumption these days. The worst of the worst is elevated while inspiring artists struggle to make ends meet.
