Extremely lovely rear views...... And the expression on the face of the statue admirer to the left is priceless!

Maybe the statue was not wearing its fig leaf that day?

*little sign hanging on member: "exhibit removed for cleaning"*

Could I get a job as a fig leaf-cleaner? I suppose I'd rather have one as a member-cleaner. I often felt envy for the woman who cleaned the statue of David recently.

*Mechtildina Baggenzi stands on ladder, rag in hand, humming "The Shire" theme under her breath*

Uffizi director: Signora Mechtildina! Haven't you been polishing his little pisello long enough?

Maeglian, P.S. I posted a link to the bio of Canova, but in the other journal entry, the one on Venus and Adonis, since that was where I already had included a passage from it.
