Hehe, I bet Anna Smashnova proudly displays this on her mantlepiece at home, not!!

I think the Canberra tournment needs to find a more attractive trophy!

Nice...if you like something completely warped and ugly

Some of these tournies really need to reconsider the trophies they award...afterall they are ment to be prizes aren't they?

It's supposed to have a 'tribal' or 'primative' aspect to it, a shrunken head would have sufficed for me.

good art is always ugly

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

Don't they usually give the champions a smaller replica of the trophy? Or is that only at Grand Slams? Cause then Anna could have a smaller piece of poo on her mantlepiece rather than a big one.

this one looks really strange

A conversation about this trophy came up awhile back and I remember somebody suggested that the reason the tournament gave out such an ugly trophy is because the player winning it wouldn't want such a nasty thing and would not wanna take it home with them... therefore, saving the tournament some money! lol!!!
