Bite Me!

An interesting story to this one; it's not just a naked chick poking her hand into the yawning cakehole of some stoney-faced weirdo, you see...

In fact it's a visual representation of the Roman legend according to which one cannot remove one's hand from the mouth of Truth unless one has never lied.

Personally I think it would be far safer for all of us to keep our mitts well away from gaping mouths of any sort, especially those claiming to know The Truth, of all things.

The sculpture, La Bocca Della Verita, by Jules Blanchard, resides in the Jardin de Luxembourg, and is a pleasant respite from all the other boring ones scattered around the place. Having said that, there are very often modern sculpture exhibits on display here, so I shouldn't slag them off too much, and besides, boring old statues are kulcharul, innit? Honest.
