It's a...postmodern totem pole water feature, meant to draw attention to societal obsession with the derrière?

Possibly titled: Junk in the Trunk (?)

Don't mean to be rude or offend anyone but that is the most unflattering "totem pole" that I have ever seen.

Its a bird, its a plane, its a.......WTF is it? It could also just be titled 'junk in the marsh' lol

WOW, I guess it would be interesting to see what the artist has to say about their motivation for this one. So random.

Mom--Yeah, I'm not sure it is a totem pole, I just thought the wing span seemed very Stanley Park.

Ais--You crack me up! Haha. Dan read your comment and laughed (probably remembering your badminton war) "Your sister is too witty sometimes."

T--This design reminds me of something hanging in the Zurich train station (maybe you saw it?) of a fat lady with wings. Same bold colours and exaggeration, though thankfully the one in the train station doesn't spout water! haha
