Two Ankles In Plaster

"It's called 'Two Ankles in Plaster'. What do you think?" The artist asked, expecting a positive answer.

"It just looks like a flat surface with a coupla small bumps on it. I don't see ankles, or feet for that matter, and the color is just plain white. I don't know, I guess I just don't get it."

"Well," the artist came back, getting a bit defensive, "it's really a metaphor, an allegory actually, depicting man's struggle for understanding life."

"Oh my!" The newcomer stood gazing at the work. "Fantastic! Absolute genius! The insight into the human condition, why, it's amazing!"
