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.
