3 hands and 1 penis (no sex, archeology)


Le statue truccate di Palazzo Chigi  mani e pene posticci a Venere e MarteItalian Prime Minister was quite upset when he saw the statue that was taken from Museo delle Terme di Diocleziano to embellish the central court of Palazzo Chigi, the Prime Minister’s residence in the center of Rome. What a shame to show to foreign visitors that the statue was missing some parts: the thing had to be fixed immediately!

That is why now Venus has back both her hands and Mars has a new right hand and a brand new penis. And all of this for just under $ 100,000- !!

Against all the rules of restoration.

Here’s the story.

Update: Corriere.it report that the extra hands and the penis can be taken off anytime you want. A sort of “action figures” like the Disney’s ones…
