Netflix Review: Struggle (The Life and Lost Art of Szukalski)

Image Courtesy of IMDb

Summary

This documentary recalled the life and works of Stanislav Szukalski, beginning from his latter times in California and backtracking into his past. For five years, his close friend Glen Bray helped him to record him telling his eccentric and imaginative tales of success and failures.

From his own invented alphabet to how he believed that Easter island was where humanity began, he was called a genius as a child to a megalomaniac as an adult.

Conclusion

As a fan of art, I was completely intrigued with this sculptor’s life story. Despite the failures in life and his career, he was able to work to the end at something he loved.

Now I would love to Chicago’s Polish Museum of America!

Art Inspiration: Bling Ring

This ring design was inspired by the Grace ring by Lucine And Company!

Behold a rough gem

So dull and

Untouched

Eons of years

Passed by

Forgotten by the world

Till one day

It’s sparkle

Caught the eye of

A beholder

Who treasured it

And unveiled

Its glory

Connecting Manhattan

And Brooklyn

With its Neo-Gothic

Stone arches

It continues to

Draw the attention of

Tourists who

All attempt to

Pose in front of

The arches

While avoiding

Other people

From interfering

In the background.

What a challenge!

Flying in the

Deep blue ocean

Gliding

In and out

Of mysterious

Underwater caves

Never knowing

It will

Swerve around

And stare right

At you.
