big chair

 image taken from

i'm not sure why there's this big chair outside l.a. mart at washington and broadway.  i've read vague things about dueling big chairs (pacific design center i think) and italians, but the whole motivation behind it still escapes me.  is it really even still a chair if no human being can sit on it?  i catch a glimpse of it from the blue line on occasion, but only after noticing it while driving north on broadway once.

now, if you look at it from a different perspective (links to google street view, hope you can view it), you'll see a different building in the background.  hopefully, you don't recognize this as one of the county's courthouses.

i can't be the only one who finds hilarity in the big chair being next to where tickets to the big house are issued, can i?  i know, it's just the traffic division of the county courts, so it's probably a rare day that anyone gets put away in that court, but still.
