Angels & Devils - The Twins Mutterings of the Muses: I'm not sure to what extent two imps conspiring, is more or less frightening, but they are amusing to wonder at. It would make a great sculpture.

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #379 – Ol’ Groucho

Ol’ Groucho Mutterings of the Muses: It's odd what contributes to ones sense of humour. On occasion I am amazed to what extent the Marx Brothers are part of my everyday aesthetic vernacular.
