Sumo Sculptures by Mu Boyan – With Wealth Comes FAT
Mu Boyan was born in Shangdong, China. With degree and master in Fine Arts, Mu Boyan exhibited his work throughout the world. One of his more recent work tackles the touchy subject of obesity by featuring an adorable, but undeniably fat Sumo Wrestler.
According to Mu Boyan;
Fat is fat, but there are two ways of looking at it. While an excess of adipose tissue may be unattractive to Westerners, in the East, it’s a sign of decadent wealth. After all, only people who can afford to be fat are those who can afford to eat more food than they absolutely have to.
