    Man, cages are for those who haven't risen up and thrown off the tyranny of a shackled mind yet.. You feel me, man?

    See look at Frank, right? ..Frank must have been feeling really trapped within his mind. So he had to go all the way to Africa to free his soul, and then find it again stripped of all its western rigidity so he could rejoin with it and fly into the sun, where the bright forces of light and seedling may come together and germinate.

    And from Frank's transcendentally germinated mind come his works.

    I mean.. how'd you THINK he does it? Lava Lamps?

    Ah, this is totally why I could see a cage.

    The broken thread inserts are the main reason I feel a half cage is bare minimum, structurally tying top and bottom mounting holes together and adding new ones with more integrity.
