Shi Jinsong’s “Na Zha Baby Boutique”…

I’m not really a fan of little children… Too much crying, vomit, poop, insomnia, responsibility… No, I’m not a fan of little children. But when seeing the awesome sculptures by Chinese artist Shi Jinsong I start to have doubts. His “Na Zha Baby Boutique” collection is inspired by the child-god Na Zha from Chinese folklore, who was known for pranks, violence, cunning intelligence and “power-dressing”, if we have to believe Wikipedia. I can think of no better example for my possible offspring… And just look at that buggy… I would win all the “mommy wars” without a single effort!

About quantumphysica

My name is QuantumPhysica The Insane, but you can call me QP. I am insane, admitted to a mental hospital in Belgium, and waiting for a decent diagnosis at the moment. Once I was a physics student with goals in life and what more; now I'm simply the patient of Room 93. Ever wondered what life is like in the psychiatric ward? I'll tell you everything you ever wanted to know... I am... particularly twitchy of personality. But I also am genuinely interested in everything. There is nothing that doesn't interest me, really. Everything, from quantum computers to fashion and cars to traveling... I also give advice. On anything. No taboos whatsoever. And I make lists of things...

    Na Zha (or Ne Zha as I believe to be the correct pronunication) is my childhood hero! Lol. His story is very violent and bloody indeed.
    As a kid he killed the son of a dragon king, cut it open and took out its tendon to play with. He was scolded by his father for this crime. When father threatened to kill him, Ne Zha cut himself open and separated his bone and flesh, saying I am returning my bones and flesh to you so I don’t owe you anything now. Later Boddhisattva Guanyin gave him a new body made of Lotus flowers and leaves.
