Giacometti spaghetti

Giacometti made tall elongated sculptural figures. If you're not familiar with them, check the link before reading further. They are totally unique and really excellent.

The idea here is very simple and consists of remaking a set of similarly elongated Giacometti forms out of pasta. A few of these spaghettified figures dropped into a pot of boiling water would soon be transformed into a tasty meal. I'm sure Giacometti would have approved.

       //I'm sure Giacometti would have approved.//   

       This is one of those cases where "I'm sure" throws the whole subsequent statement into doubt.

       I'm not quite sure.

       But of course! [+]

       Spaghetticometti, with Francis Bacon

       Best served with Parmigianino cheese flakes. (named after the artist Girolamo Francesco Maria Mazzola)

       Very nice linked image.

       Yes - sacrilegious to subvert Giacometti's wonderful pieces into pasta, but I initially had liquorice in mind, those being Giacomiquoirice-men of course.
xenzag, May 30 2015

       Please explain to me how the shape doesn't get all distorted and hunched over and sort of in a big pile of pasta when it's served. I'm not seeing it. Guide me there xenie.

       It does exactly what you have described..... a tangle of elongated arms, bodies and legs that you have to hag into like a savage! Pour on that red tomato sauce to add to the drama.

       Alrighty then.

       Can we have a side dish of jolly, round people by Arcimboldo, for contrast?
pertinax, Jun 02 2015

       //jolly, round people by Arcimboldo// yes, or perhaps Henry Moore potatoes?   

       I'm sure there are hosts of wonderful artists who's living works we can identify and commodify as some kind of foodstuff or other.   

       Some of Antony Gormley's works look a bit like unshelled peanuts, so there's a lead there.   

       Magritte Liquorice pipes, perhaps? (though we might have to be wary of trading standards law on that one)   

       There's Mondrian too, who strikes me would be ideally suited to a new form of Battenburg cake.
