can you guess what it is?

OK. Here's a photo quiz.

Can you guess what this is a photo of....

Got it?

No, it's not a black hole...


A close-up of a wood knot? Guess again!

Vasil Levski National Stadium in the dark? Wow, nice try, but wrong again!

OK, I'll tell you.

It's actually a dog's arsehole. Or more accurately, one that's been sculpted - very carefully by the looks of it....

There are a lot of great statues dotted around Japan, but I'm pretty sure this isn't one of them.

I mean, is it so important to have that part of the anatomy shown in such detail? The sculptor evidently spent more time on the hole of the dog than on the whole of the rest of the dog. Whatever was he thinking?

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for a bit of realism, but does it have to be so, how can I say, prominent? I think we need a poll to sort this one out....

Judging by manga, the Japanese are fairly keen on arseholes.

I'm sorry I can't make that sound more diplomatic.

I heard, from my modeling friends, that the original dog model for that statue has retired. That means there's an opening for aspiring models. It might be worth poking a stick at it....I might have a crack!

At first, I thought it was the image of a religious figure that had magically appeared on a tree trunk. Anyway, the detail of this particular arsehole is unrelated to anatomy. This sculpture is not metal, but is actually a piece of glass artwork.
In order to blow the dog, a pole was inserted in the dog's arsehole.

Was this dog the prime minister of Japan in a previous life. I didn't see any hemorrhoids, though. I have noticed that Japanese are obsessed with the ketsu ana even from a young age they'll try to poke you in the rear while exclaiming "Koncho"! Dam little anal terrorists if you ask me.

LOL great post, where's that dog from? Another angle for Shibuya's Hachiko?

Still, I find that thing to be a bit anatomically incorrect. Would have to look at another dogs to have a better understanding
