11905 Giacometti           Discovered 1991 Nov. 6 by E. W. Elst at the European Southern Observatory.
The work of Swiss sculptor Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966), often compared to that of the Existentialists, contrasted with the avant-garde in that it attempted to equal reality so that a sculpture, like "Observing Head" (1927), would be perceived as if it were alive. Other masterpieces are "The Palace at 4 a.m." and "1 + 1 = 3".
