Okuizomo, a town in Japan, has an art problem. They really appreciate the replica of Michelangelo’s David donated by a local businessman, but because of the statue’s lack of clothes, the citizens’ feathers are a little ruffled. There’s also a Venus de Milo replica, and it’s near a playground for children. That seems like an oversight regarding location.
Yoji Morinaga, a town official, explained why the townspeople have qualms about their new sculptures:
They are statues of unclothed humans, and such pieces of art work are very rare in our area. Some people apparently said the statues might not be good for their children.
So now, they want David to put on some damn underwear. Well, we here at ANIMAL will do you one better. Behold, David with some nifty slacks! You’re welcome, Okuizomo.
