This here is Custos Cavum ("The Guardian of the Hole"), a fantastically weird robotic sculpture by artist U-Ram Choe on display at New York City's Asia Society until December 31, 2011. The piece was inspired by the 10th-century Indian sculpture, Shiva as Lord of Dance. From Choe's synopsis of the project: » 10/29/11 1:30pm 10/29/11 1:30pm
