Cloned from 1922's list, who got it from LBangs.

Here are five works of art from five genres. These are not my favorite works, but the ones that best explain who I am and/or how I see life.

Actually, a lot of these are favourites of mine, probably because I identify with them in some way.

Not only did I enjoy reading this, but it is sending me off to Google as soon as I finish typing. Seems I've a little exploring to do, and that, natch, is one of the finest results of scanning this site. Thanks!

Shalom, y'all!

May I ask what you're conducting further research on? Please say it's Banksy.

Oh, and by the way, the inclusion of Robert Davidson has several-fold reasons. I am Haida, so it's a gimme. Plus, Robert is the leader of the dance group I'm a member of (the Rainbow Creek Dancers), and also, the subject matter of the mask is one I hold dear. Transformation is a huge part of Haida culture, and has lots of personal significance as well.

Nope. Done did my research on him after the Paris incident hit the mainstream media...

Davidson, however, is one who has already sent me to Wikipedia... :)

Shalom, y'all!

Googling or Asking him is probably a better bet. It appears the Robert Davidson in Wikipedia is a Scottish inventor. Probably not nearly as talented, humble and funny as the Robert I know.
