Giant greek statue, "without the fig leaf"

I can’t think of a better way to describe this piece of art but I shall instead borrow anonymously the following eloquent description. “Basically its’ a giant egg-plant purple replica of a Greek statue – David. The naked statue of David, to be specific. And there is NO FIG LEAF. :)”

An art installation at the National Museum of Singapore to promote the now-over Greek Masterpieces exhibition, I wonder if the giant … “egg plant” is still there. It greets visitors the minute you enter the sanctum of history and heritage that is the National Museum of Singapore. It did not fail to draw the lenses of Singaporeans who just could not resist capturing this egg plant on film. Less blatant than the sex convention, these exhibits from the Lourve’s Greek collection also comes with a smattering of nude forms. Perhaps that explained the long queue on the second last day of the exhibition when I visited.

Is this also perhaps the only time I can put NSFW content on Metblogs in the name of art, history and culture? *grin* Alas if you didn’t catch the exhibition while it was still on, perhaps you’ll just have to wait till the next sex convention, visit the Lourve in Paris or check out my limited photos of the exhibition.
