Still Figure

My days at RISD seem to reveal oddities of artistic acts that apparently flow from every pore of the campus.

It lies so still on the ground. I happened upon this sculpture lying in front of one of the cafeterias at RISD. Looking closer, I see that it is a small figure with a head made out of the roots of a living weed. Everyone is so busy with final projects that they seem to ignore the little figure. I stare at it and wonder why it is there. And what will be its future.
