Park in south Russia gets Amsterdam-inspired breast sculpture

ROSTOV-ON-DON, July 8 (RIA Novosti) - A Russian sculptor inspired by a visit to Amsterdam's notorious red-light district has created a bas-relief sculpture of a woman's breasts, now on display in a south Russian town, local authorities said.

The sculpture, lying on a one-meter-high plinth in a park in the town of Bataysk, near Rostov-on-Don, features a pair of breasts being fondled by a man's hand.

A spokeswoman for the Bataysk administration told RIA Novosti that the sculptor, Anatoly Sknarin, "saw a similar composition in Amsterdam" on a paving slab in the red-light district and decided to emulate the work in his home town.

She said the sculpture's base will be soon plastered and painted, and will display a suggestive message in verse, encouraging men to touch the breasts to "improve their manly strength" and "stay young forever."
