The other day, someone asked me why I like optically enhanced statuary so much, and I really don't know. I guess part of it is has to do with the glasslessness of the glasses, which kinda indicates the extent to which the frames act as referents. I also like the way statues and bronzes of people wearing glasses (this one's funny) concede that glasses deeply become part of a person, so much so that they would become an accoutrement remembered in bronze. As much as hairstyle or clothing, the glasses are a necessary part of the representation.
Or something like that. That still doesn't explain why they make me laugh.
I have a little set on flickr that I'm trying to grow ...
