A Conversation for The Venus de Milo - Mostly Armless


Post 1


The first time we saw the statue, my girlfriend and I were struck by how big Venus' feet are - they're huge!

I was in the Louvre a fortnight ago and, yes, those feet are massive.

I was there a couple of weeks ago, never noticed her feet. I did notice you could just see the crack of her arse if you wandered around the back. I wish I'd got me picture taken stood next to her arse crack now. You don't see that on most of the pictures of her.smiley - biggrin

Talking of arses, in December 1987 my dear wife and I were in the Louvre when we were approached by:

(Warning: National Stereotype Ahead)

a stunningly tartan-clad pair of pre-retirement Americans. Apart from their emphatic attire, they were a pleasant enough couple. However, they then blew it by asking where they could see Michelangelo's David. My wife thought for a second and replied, "I think you'll find that's in Florence". Not phased for a moment, our new transatlantic acquaintences countered, "Oh good, that's Thursday, then".

As an artistic juxtaposition, I believe the David also has rather impressive nether regions smiley - tongueincheek
