Here are some of our favourite exhibits or installations (what does that mean, anyway?) or pieces, or works of art, or whatever.
One of those guys is my husband – he’s a real piece of work at times, too.*
* I have just learned from Wikipedia that the phrase “piece of work” comes from Hamlet:
What a piece of work is a man!
How noble in Reason! how infinite in faculties!
in form and moving how express and admirable!
In action how like an Angel!
in apprehension how like a god!
the beauty of the world! the paragon of animals!
I don’t know if Shakespeare intended it so, but it is usually used with a touch of sarcasm.
