I walked past these statues the other day. I still don’t know in whose images that they are made out of. One thing is for certain. These statues are supposed to replicate images of beings, either human or divine, with a high esteem.
In today’s image-obsessed world, Hollywood celebrities are the ones that are given high esteem. They are often referred to as someone, who’s got it all. On the surface, they do seem to have everything that money can buy; however, on second thought, I beg to differ.
Although it seems like pretty much everything on the outside world is sellable and every part on a human body can be a marketable commodity; however, money still can’t buy true happiness; money still can’t guarantee a life-long marriage; money still can’t buy genuine friendship; and money still can’t promise a life of good health and longevity.
Are these high-esteemed Hollywood celebrities really someone, who’s got it all? Or, is this false assumption a reflection of our own one-sidedness, which is deeply rooted in our own bias?
