That Magritte...he was such a tease!
Les Auld: Indeed he was Chris, and with an imagination. Thanks for the comment.
We know why all the children are crawling over the dad in Elizabeth's post. Mom has no arms!
Les Auld: Nice link Mary, thanks for the comment.
intersting and beautiful...likes the framing!!
Les Auld: Appreciate the comment, many thanks.
There must be a reason for the no arms touch to sculptures such as this.
Les Auld: Old age or bad workmanship perhaps. Thanks for the comment Brian.
Milo Venus was a beautiful lass
had the world in the palm of her hand
lost both her arms in a wrestling match
to win a brown eyed handsome man
Les Auld: What evocative words Bill, thanks for the comment.

She looks as though she is wearing a bin bag draped round her nether regions! A strangely compelling sculpture made more so by your treatment.
Les Auld: So she does Ingrid, thanks for the comment.
