7: Swans a-Swimming
This nob with it's swan-neck shaft evokes movement and fluidity of a near balletic nature. The colour white is significant, bringing to mind the purity first imagined by Tchaikovsky in his Swan Lake and the large, powerful head and slicing urethra hint at savagery and masculinity as realised in Matthew Bourne's contemporary imagining of the piece. With more loaded straps than you can shake a stick at, the all male swans know how to wave their wangers. But what of the nobartist? The influence is clear, but what was the purpose? Nobadvertising?
