Welcome to the SculptureGallery Blog.  This is our first post!

Where does cross the line into the pornography business?

Everyone seems to have trouble defining pornography, yet they claim to "know it when they see it." I was astonished when we had a person write a letter to the landlord for our downtown gallery objecting to the nudity of Michelangelo's David in our showroom window.

In an attempt to placate this person, I fitted David out in the underware shown here. Hey, you've gotta have a sense of humor to make it in this business.  The public reaction was mixed.  Some thought it was great, and worthy of a good laugh.  Others felt that we were mocking great art.  

What do you think?  Do you agree with former Attorney General Ashcroft that the statue of Lady Justice must have her bare bosom draped before it could be shown behind him on television?
