This freaky thing, called Homunculus Loxodontus (also known as “Zhdun” in Russia), is actually a sculpture created by the Dutch artist Margriet Van Breevoort in 2016 for the Leiden University in Netherlands. It was initially installed in front of a children hospital in Leiden, but a year later in 2017 it was moved inside the Leiden University Medical Center.
This sculpture is a weird combo of a sea lion, and an insect, with a smidgen of human added to the mix. But wait till you see what it does! It… just sits there. Waiting. In front of a waiting room, I suppose. Either way, you get the idea. So why did it blow up? Memes.
When the Russkies got a hold of the pics, the memes started to flow like there’s no tomorrow, and here is just a tiny sample. Enjoy!

2. Yes the Zhdun did get to the art section of the internet. Nothing is sacred.

3. Some Tumblr user tried calling it “Snorp” but I doubt it’ll stick.

5. Some show, I suppose. Who knows what, why or when it was done, really.
