Art Imitates (Surreal) Life — Shoe Attack Sculpture Unveiled

While it's probably not the tribute liberator George W. Bush expected, a sculpture inspired by the journalist who threw his shoes at the ex-President has been unveiled in Iraq. Hundreds of people gathered this past Thursday to see the giant shoe, which appropriately enough has a bush growing out of it.

The piece of art, which also includes a poem praising the journalist, is located in the gardens of a foundation for children whose parents have died as a result of the US invasion. Meanwhile, the journalist, Muntadar al-Zaidi, still sits in jail, awaiting trial and a potential 15-year sentence.
