mixed media art piece "for men"

A Piece for Men

I didn’t really create this as a piece for men, but it proved to be such so I named it thus.

A heavy spring hangs above an open hook imbedded in the bottom base. A simple idea creates an incredible desire. Although women seemed more content to nod in recognition, men were especially attracted to trying to catch the hook – it was like an itch they couldn’t scratch. When this piece was in a show, a man dislocated his shoulder trying to stretch the spring!
