A Work of Art

Paul Tyrrell has asked a flattering question: if I were to have my portrait in the NPG, what medium would I want it to be in?

Assuming I can't have myself stuffed and mounted here, I'd probably go for something mutable - something fluid and flexible. I don't like the idea of being fixed in two dimensions, static and lifeless. I've seen some fantastic water sculptures and fountains, so I think I'd go for a fountain of wine - part Bacchus, part Catullus, and widely enjoyed. (The cheap stuff will be fine.)
