This sculpture, made out of 'cultured stone' which is a fancy way of saying cementious concrete is directly inspired by amazing rock formations I saw in china called Lingbi or gongshi. This is a larger sculpture standing about I see a dragon when I look at this sculpture, kind of a brutalist, modern, almost cubist dragon, my son sees a bird, what do you see? It looks and feels like real stone. I love concrete or I should say cement, I used cement and added some different types of aggregate to get the rough, dragon-skin like surface. I ran a file around some of the edges to simulate a stone out of the quarry, so there is very light 'wear' in some areas. I took a photo of the 'worst' which you can only see if you get right up close.
The Narrator fights through the pain of the chemical burn on his hand. He begins to use guided meditation to escape from it. Tyler notices, telling him to come back to the pain. The Narrator imagines himself in Ireland, on a trip he took after he left college. During this trip he visited the Blarney Stone, but instead of kissing it, he urinated on it.
He was also the childhood friend of Tony Stark. The pair grew up very competitive with each other always fighting over girls, sports, and grades. Their parents were business rivals and Howard Stark eventually drove Stone to the verge of bankruptcy.
