Happy Birthday, Mountain Man!

Finally back from a most fur-raising and death-defying alpine expedition. However, no injuries were sustained, due to the Spirit of Mountain Man that was everpresent in the Rockies. During the trip, a sculpture was chewed from a log as an MM birthday tribute:




As you can see in this close-up, the beard was made from black mold blooms; it will continue to sprout & grow, like a chia pet:



Unfortunately, the airplane security fascists would not allow it on board; in fact, they became very hostile and initiated an extensive and delightful cavity search (the oxy stash was discovered in this manner). There didn't seem like any other choice but to install the MM effigy at the top of Toast Mountain.

A big toast to you, MM, on your b-day! and another... and another... a tower of toasts. Yum.

Hello! I am high on afterlife. I will skywrite a birthday greeting to you with my ultralight aircraft, Mountain Man!

Oh my god Slothy, I am speechless. He is so beautiful I might like to own him. He is elegant and awkward, proud to be made of the woods of life.

By the way, you were amazing, my dear one. You reached an ecstatic place in your intoning. Uncle Fritz and I are going to take a photo with the wig and beard and assorted munchies in it and post it maybe. That was the greatest thing I have ever seen.

It appears he's been lacerated by some kind of whipping machine, though scar tissue makes very pretty pattern

MM, the beard/hair combo is a tiny token of a deep and twisted affection. You may notice that there are many mysteries and surprises within.

Forgot to give you the pink '70s 'fro pick, dammit...

Corny, a lovely effect can be achieved with a brand new cheese grater applied to the dermal surface. Possible designs are: grid, weave, crop-circle, psychedelic swirl pattern, woodgrain. Much cheaper and more creative than microdermabrasion!

I seriously want to own this sculpture. Is it for sale?

MM, truth be told, it was installed outside at the place we were staying. Perhaps it is for sale... or for steal...
