Archetype Inc Portland Fun Fact of the Day #31

And now for more bizarre public artwork! Count Alexander von Svoboda unleashed a monstrosity carved from a 190-ton chunk of white Carerra marble upon an unsuspecting Portland public. The sculpture, created for what was then the Georgia-Pacific building, is officially known as “Quest.” Locals, however, give it a much earthier appellation, a play on the title of a famous ditty which received the Academy Award for Best Original Song.

"Three Groins in a Fountain" aka "Quest"

          This bizarre installation depicts….something. Something vaguely human and multiply anatomically correct. You can view some pictures of it at
