In honour of Marx's 195th birthday, Karl Marx, 2013
Renowned for his multiples, Ottmar Hörl creates his work for the masses - affordable artworks that veer from the whimsical to the controversial. Influenced by garden gnomes and other ornamental sculptures, his pieces are fun, eye-catching, and guaranteed to raise a smile.To celebrate Karl Marx's 195th birthday in 2013, Hörl placed 500 of these sculptures in the bearded thinker's hometown of Trier.
Hörl has deliberately chosen just 5 shades - and they're all red. Slightly different reds, but red nonetheless.
Your neighbours are going to ask questions when a 100cm-high Karl Marx turns up on the front lawn. Better re-read The Communist Manifesto just in case.
