That doesn’t even look like Michelle, and why is Barack sitting in Ivy?  

#myhottakesdrivetraffic

Edit: the higher resolution one I replaced the original with looks a lot more like her, I think. I like it more. And the Ivy is growing on me.

Heh.

The pose and the dress are fantastic, but that really doesn't look at like her....

As formal portraits, I’m not a fan, either. A whole bunch of art critics and culture warriors love both pieces, though. Granted, I lack the ability to see the importance of these pieces from the perspective of a black American.
In the end, it’s not something that affects me and I just don’t care one way or the other.

The Michelle one isn't bad at all, even though the face really doesn't look like hers.

The one of Barack is just lulzy. Is he supposed to be sitting in left field at Wrigley?

Yes, that is the symbolism, Barrack is way out in left field. Wink

If we apply your logic, in four years we can expect to see a portrait of Trump waist deep in bovine scat. :poop:

to the folks who get their news from the mainstream media, that's either a quality indigenous to folks born in Kenya or an underground Muslim shout-out to extremist terror organizations.

That super closeup pic does actually. There are other angles that look not so great. Better than the Morgan Freeman statue outside.

It’s pretty funny until I remember that the president of the United States takes marching orders from that guy.
