The giantess as public art

Not every example of a giantess is created by My People With Our Agenda for our dirty reasons. For example, this giant nude made out of peaches was displayed in Brisbane to promote better skin care by Australian women. How long a giant statue made out of actual peaches can last in the Brisbane sun was not made clear, though the local newspaper guessed that ten days was about the limit.

In Nantes, France, this gigantic puppet of a little girl drew large crowds back in 2005. What was the artist trying to say? Who knows? They're French!

This enormous realistic mannequin with her head stuck in a photo booth was displayed in a London train station recently. This artwork's purpose was clear enough. On the small of her back was a tattoo advertising the show London Ink, one of the many reality shows that has both British and American versions, the American show being shot in Miami.

Instead of oversized women in public settings, photographer Julia Fullerton-Batten took pictures of young women in scale model city scenes for an exhibit entitled Teenage Stories.

See, it's not smut for wierdos! It's art!

At least, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
