    I've seen this three times now. Once on the street in DC and twice on the street in Hollywood.

    Stop being so inept to answer a question.

    I happen to live in the DC area, so although I haven't seen this "character" myself, perhaps I could ask around. But with that big stick up your ass, I don't think I'll bother.

    These reflectorman stickman robot skeleton street tiles are variations of Toynebe tiles.
    The tiles are wrapped in tar paper and placed on a busy street early in the morning. The pressure exerted by automobiles driving over the tile for weeks on end pushes it into the road surface. Eventually, the tarpaper wears away exposing the robot skeleton.

    Apparently, they have become urban art.

    This. There was a short fad around here after the NYT did a story on them a couple of years ago. One guy put one on the street in front of his house that said "SLOW THE FUCK DOWN"

    A severely abused voodoo doll with holes where important chakras used to be?

    A novelty pancake?

    A whimsical scouring pad?

    A homemade IUD?

    A defective "Gumby" tampon?

    Interesting response. I like.




















    I don't know nearly enough about chakras but I do know of them.
