Just the ear would have be fine

Inflatable art, you can’t get past it or, in this case, over it. Paul McCarthy may well have an exhibition of his inflatables later this year in Antwerp, but for general weirdness we reckon this Vincent van Gogh balloon takes a lot of beating. It appears to be based on the painting Self-portrait with felt hat that is in the Rijksmuseum Vincent van Gogh in Amsterdam. The balloon was made in 2003 for the 150th anniversary of Van Gogh's birth and these photos were taken a year later in Canberra.
