The stone man flows; the snake creeps down -
arm becoming viper.
It's slow, but silently it flows,
stealthy as a sniper.
And though he's stone, I feel him go
via sympathetic flow.
Mirror neurons fire in my brain,
taking me high to low...
or so it feels.
This sculpture by Ju Ming is apparently called “Single Whip,” though it reminds me more of “Snake Creeps Down” because of it’s downward slope of the arms. At any rate, it can be found in Victoria Square in downtown Montreal.
