    Arthur Ganson has made a similar sculpture, but smaller. It is the walking wishbone. It has such pathos. This little wishbone is dwarfed by the contraption that it appears to be dragging. That is really not what is happening — the contraption is making the wishbone walk. Try http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p0sMj6xQXFI
