      Maybe we should start a tampon chandelier group?

      I'm not surprised Europe is in a recession with this kind of excess.

      When I walked the venue, the media guide said the guerilla girls brought the piece to Venice.

      Then you've been misinformed. The work is called "The Bride"/"A Noiva" (2001) by portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos and is currently being exhibited at Versailles. Please be kind as to change your description and give proper credit to the rightful artist, since many art and design websites are using your picture and its incorrect description.

      I was there to see this hanging. I'm confused as to how this isn't a Guerilla Girls installation.
