A suitable alternative to David

THE Obscene Articles Tribunal needs feel lonely no longer. The municipality of Jerusalem has also decided it doesn't like the nudity of Michelangelo's David.


The statue's home city of Florence had offered to send a replica of the statue as part of Jerusalem's 3,000th anniversary celebrations next year. But the city fathers fear the young man's nudity would upset Orthodox Jews and Muslims in the city. So now Florence is sending a copy of a bronze by another sculptor which may not be as fine as Michelangelo, but has the advantage of wearing clothes. Maybe our own tribunal could follow suit.
