“The Whistleblower” — Verax. The forgotten man?! (“Can he be safely rendered yet, without too much public outcry?” say the spies).
Glenn Greenwald met with a larger-than-life statue of Snowden recently, on the streets of NYC. The statue was then forcibly removed, after 2 hours, because it lacked the proper government approvals & paperwork. True to form?!
The Robin Hood of our digital days. Telling the truth about Big Brother’s surveillance of the innocent townsfolk, while the conniving Sheriff of Nottingham wrings his hands back in the Castle. Hooray for this brave lad, and the other whistleblowers who dare to speak truth to power!
(I’m still working on this bust, filling in a few odd spots and trying to get the eyeglasses right :p)
The final version will be cast in white hydrocal, with wire rim glasses added.
