Prosthesis Anyone?

Prosthesis Anyone?

This was a picture I took from the office of an orthopedic surgeon.

The surgeon is listed as a top doctor in Washingtonian Magazine.

Next to the medications, bandages, and splints was this statue of a sailor with a wooden leg.

I suppose the message is clear–if only he had a good orthopedic surgeon, he could have a modern functional prosthetic instead of this old wooden leg.

Well, thank G-d for modern medicine, and hopefully it will only get better and better with time. 😉

What A Dummy!

Dummy
This guy is a real dummy–no, I am not being mean or rude.

While this guy looks very real, it is actually a statue and is called “Vendor With Walkman” by Duane Hanson.

This guy sits in a windowed room in Ft. Lauderdale Airport, and it seems that almost everyone who passes by stops and does a double-take–he is so real looking–it is amazing!

Looks are deceiving, but this takes it to a whole new level–think hard about what is real and fake; it is not always so obvious. 😉
