This sculpture series by New York-based artist Marsha Tosk immediately won us over. A literal interpretation of common terms or phrases, each sculpture is a combination of wit, whimsy and form...

The Figures in Speech sculpture collection came about in September of 2008, "as a response to the economic downturn. The figurative, realistic work is based on my belief that humor is an antidote to tough times." We couldn't agree more and hats off to you, Marsha, for making us laugh out loud (on a crummy day) when we first saw Hot Dog.

Take a look through the three sculptures we've pictured here and see if you can guess their titles. Then, visit Tosk's website to check your guess and see more from the collection.
