A Statue with Bleeding Nose


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASomeone would probably be able to tell me at which angle, with what kind of object and how many times…; what I see is seriousness of effort, deliberateness and maybe even something like, here I beg my reader’s forgiveness for this Marxist reverie, history itself authenticating the image with strata of urban violence! Good. I am using this bronze relief, which you can always re-discover for yourself in the Puget Court of the Louvre, but I am displaying here to answer the question that still torments so many, “Why Versailles?” Right, if you had a capital like Paris, and the palace like the Louvre, why would you go out there into the swamps? Uh?
