It's a dress AND a painting!?

There's an artwork on public display in my community that isn't labeled with the artist's name or the title of the piece, and I'd like to know more about it. The facility that has it on display doesn't have the information, so I'm hoping you could take a look at it (or just read my description) and tell me if you know more about it, or where I could find out who created it and what it is called.

Can you identify this statue of a man holding a tetrahedron?

One of a number of painting/pictures I acquired recently is of a statue in which a man is holding a tetrahedron (pic 1 | pic 2). I am fascinated by the image, but have no idea about actual information about the statue. Artist, title, location, intended subject matter, etc., etc. Any help in identification and/or additional info would be great! [more inside]

Seinfeld J. Peterman photo identification

For a season or two on Seinfeld Elaine was working at J. Peterman's place and had an office with a large photo (maybe a painting) of a bridge or a dock or some such thing. It was directly behind her desk and was in at least one episode, probably more than a couple. Can anyone identify said poster/print and maybe point to a place to buy?
