A Brief History of Princess X
by Gabriel Abrantes, 2016
Is it a joke?
Is it serious?
I can't tell, but I really like this sculpture.
A supercharged history of sculptor Constantin Brancusi’s infamous ‘Princess X’, a futuristic bronze phallus that is actually a bust portrait of Napoleon’s equally infamous great grand niece, Marie Bonaparte.
