Art Exceeds Real Life

My nephew Reuben (pictured below) studies graphic design at the Glasgow School Of Art.  He posted this on his Facebook.

Did he realise what he was doing, showing the yellow circle in the middle between the blue and the red?  The more speech-capable and subdued classier breed sits on the right, contrasting with the loud cawing of the lower class crow coming from the red marker to the left.

Which does the characterless yellow centre prefer out of the two?

I think we know the answer to that one.

I don’t know what inspired this design, but there’s more politics to be found here in this piece of art than can currently be found in the whole of Parliament.

Later –

looks as if the blues won
N.B. The rather beautiful and tall parrot flying up to take his perch at the head on the smaller yellow marker.  The parrotlels are uncanny.

Comment by email that I don’t know my left from my right.  Take the view from behind looking forward.  That is the correct way to see left and right, as it is in reality, not as per the view of an onlooker.  In photos the convention has become to see left and right from the view of the onlooker, but it is strictly and logically not correct.
