Tokyo, February 6 - Giant reproductions of
Michelangelo's David and the Venus de Milo are raising eyebrows
in the Japanese town of Okuizumo because of their oversize nude
bodies.
The five-meter-high statues, sculpted by Italian artist
Enzo Pasquini, have led to a wave of complaint letters calling
on town officials to "put some pants on the David" and "put a
blouse on the Venus de Milo".
The latter is positioned outside a playground and "the
children are afraid," as one angry parent put it.
Mayor Katsuhiro Inoue issued a statement to his 17,000
townspeople, arguing that the statues are "a great educational
opportunity for children to see first class art up close".
