The Finest Toilet Paper Holder of 2013?

It was no contest.

This sculpture greeted visitors at the entry to SURDICO: Primera Bienal de Arte Contemporáneo Puerto Varas, or the First Biennale of Contemporary Art, in Puerto Varas, Chile in March 2013. Had it worn a price tag somewhere, I almost could have been tempted to break my no-shopping pledge and travel with it for a while.

I came across a Facebook page for the second Biennale a couple years ago. I hope they’re managing to collect the resources to organize a third.

In case you missed it, check out my nine-photo tour of the inaugural SURDICO.


For the record, today’s Pic du Jour, the site’s 1,158th straight, was snapped on 6 March 2013, four years ago today.
