Half-a-Man

By JohnnyBG    
A sculpture above a doorway in the old town area of Stockholm.
I noticed he has been pruned. Strange how one's attention is drawn to something absent.
And, in fact, he was never a man at all. Smile

Why should men be constrained by antiquated stereotypes of masculinity? What does it even mean to 'Be a Real Man' anymore? Shouldn't we all be celebrating a wide range of definitions of manhood?

Laughing at Leo's comment. Maybe he was 'manspreading' too wide?

A sad story, it reminded me of Oscar Wilde's grave at Père Lachaise Cemetery.
Please note:

Quote:The testicles were removed in an act of vandalism in 1961. It is said that the cemetery manager used them as a paperweight. They are now missing.

Following on from mrswoolybill's comment I read that, "In 2000, Leon Johnson, a multimedia artist, installed a silver prosthesis to replace them."

In my humble opinion they should have been golden.
