Giving a fig

We’ve always said that sculpture is where you find it and last weekend we found it at a Garden Centre. The sandstone version of Michelangelo's David we spotted was made in China. He has been slimmed down to what must have seemed to the sculptor more reasonable proportions in a land not yet obsessed with fast food. That in turn reminded us of the fat David that circulated on the net a while back.

And, if you you are finding yourself three times offended, go here to get David Covered - discreet David, “... for those individuals or educational organizations who would rather display him with covered private parts.”
Images: Davids, left garden variety. Right top before, bottom after.
