STATUARY

Resting in Milano

 

The only thing these statues have in common is that, for one reason or another, they stopped us to gawk. For strange beauty, it’s hard to beat the African in the hills above Portofino. For kitch, a topless dancer outside a strip club in the Zona Rosa of Mexico City. A stained cherub, a frothing devil, a vengeful god, a boy up to no good–how could anyone walk by any of these?
