Steve is a young art student: he carved a sculpture for an art exam in which he needed to get a very good grade in order to pass the school year. The sculpture is erotically shaped and surprises his friend Kobosh, who falls in love with it. Kobosh helps his friend to carry the statue to the museum, so that the professor can examine it. Steve enters the exposition room with his professor to find Kobosh having sexual intercourse with the statue! The professor interprets the “performance” as a work of fierce social critique and thinks the piece is Steve’s best work…And Kobosh is employed for all the vernissage of Steve’s exhibitions!
