In Lashkar Gah, the capital of Helmand Province, Afghanistan, there is a particularly gaudy roundabout. On the island at the centre of this roundabout stands a giant globe. Students here could be forgiven for achieving results below the average on geography tests, as this globe, adorned with peace doves and sitting atop a pedestal reminiscent of a massive melted candle, takes a somewhat liberal approach to the labelling of several geographic entities.
In this artistic interpretation of the world, the Atlantic ocean has been relocated and Americans are no longer people; they are mere statistics brought together.
Well, I suppose the globe guy didn’t get it entirely wrong…
One thought on “The Specific Ocean”
