A closer view of the upside down egghead. Notice the wrinkles on the head's top, perhaps it had landed there and become squashed.

The upside down egghead appeared to be laughing at its own predicament.

The upside down egghead was signed by the artist as, "Arneson '92."

The back of the upside down egghead had another eye. This eye was open and staring up at Mrak Hall.

A closer view of the eye on the back of the egghead. That eye faced Mrak Hall, hence the title of this sculpture was, "Eye On Mrak."

A side view of the upside down egghead, but inverted to show what the egghead might look like right-side-up.
