  1. Beautiful. I don’t think it could be kept in an american museum. It would be condemned as pedophilia by the gay community, much less the religious.

  2. Beautiful Statue. Interesting how they sculptured these with such minute details for the genitalia “for realism”. Too bad they didn’t sculpture them even more realistically having erections with the same minute details.

    C’mon. Doing this and what they represent didn’t/wouldn’t have erections with the love they show between them?

    1. As anyone with a knowledge of ancient Greco-Roman sexual history knows that erections were disvalued in sculpture, except in satyrs (who were viewed pejatively).

  3. Beautiful. I don’t think it could be kept in an US museum. It would be condemned as pedophilia by the gay community, much less the religious.

  4. Also interestingly, the vast majority (if not all) of these wonderful male statues depict their genitalia uncircumsized — must have been done before the asininity of christianity took hold in their societies. But some erections would give them the opportunities to show their glans. :-)

    1. In Europe, genital mutilation of boys isn’t performed by the majority culture.

      In any case, it’s a beautiful statue. If it ever was painted I think it probably looks better without it. :)

    2. Christians all over the world are not circumcised, only Americans are, regardless of religion or atheism, for the sake of a supposedly better health and hygiene that is hardly worth this mutilation, according to scientists. The statistical differences are barely significant.

      As for the painting of statues, I am surprised that these archeologists haven’t realized yet that unless they were painted, statues of gods that don’t exist would necessarily be invisible and then who would order them if they can’t show them off?

      As for the supposedly missing erections, I see them all right. Can’t you picture the sculptor spending hours and days caressing the roughly cut marble until it becomes smooth translucent skin?

      1. “Christians all over the world are not circumcised, only Americans are, regardless of religion or atheism,”

        You obviously don’t have much knowledge about “worldly” men and their penises. Christians all over the world ARE circumcised — witness the hundreds of MILLIONS catholics and protestants — and that’s NOT even including America’s. Philippines, S. Korea, Latin America (ALL OVER including Mexico), Australia and THROUGHOUT Europe.

        Yes, each society has their own “considerations” and it’s not even just the ‘chrissssstians’ — Africa and throughout the idiocy of the islam world — including Indonesia.

        Majority in each of those areas? Possibly not the majority, but they sure as hell ARE circumcised BECAUSE OF THEIR BULLSHIT RELIGION.

        Most steadfast atheists won’t circumcise their boys (probably “hide behind” the cost of it) in religious countries.

        1. In which European countries is genital mutilation of boys a thing (in the majority culture)?

          1. “In which European countries is genital mutilation of boys a thing”

            First, I didn’t say it was/is the majority of boys — I just pointed out the religiosity of those areas — and within them, EVERY ONE of them allow and practice circumcision.

            Europe: Pretty much every country in Western Europe circumcises their boys where there is a large [enough] population of chrissssstians: Spain, Portugal, France, Germany, Poland, Netherlands, and others I can’t think of right now.

            And let’s not forget the ‘home’ of catholicism: Italy [Rome].

            Now let’s go around the world: Australia, S. Korea, Philippines — while they may not have their MAJORITY, they all have a sizeable number of boys circumcised. In the Philippines, they regularly circumcise older boys — anywhere around 8 yrs old to as old as 16 but generally around 10-13 yrs old. And they do it NOT just in their hospitals as most countries, but also in homes, outdoors and literally wherever.

            These are FACTS [variable, to be sure within each culture].

            Africa circumsizes a huge number of their boys in certain tribes.

            ALL the islam prisons …. errr, ‘countries’ …. circumsize their boys — while I don’t know the numbers, there’s a LOT — again, from Africa, Arabian areas, Indonesia and its neighbors.

            Latin America with its major catholic influence, a LOT of boys are circumsized — if not by the poorer done “en masse” then by many of the more well-to-do in those countries (hospitals).

            There — I pointed out many of the “hot spots” around the world. Even if not in the majority of individual societies, there are still large numbers — which is a shame.

            And easily 95+++% of all those are due to religious ‘edicts’ — and NOT done just for medical reasons.

          2. In Europe the majority are not circumcised… The USA and Australia do majority circumcise…Am not sure about Philippines except for the muslim minority who mainly reside in the far south… Non Islamic Africans majority do not circumcise…

        2. I wonder what, if any, information these wild assertions are based upon. Factual information I suppose I should add these days.

          1. Look it up ….. and, I don’t know, watch some current porn from many of these countries. They will bear out exactly what I’ve said.

            “Factual information I suppose I should add these days.”

            And you might want to try some experience.

        3. Well no, it’s really a minority of Christians all over the world, and even countries where the practice used to be prevalent have a much lower circumcision rate for young kids, like 20% for Australia now, and even that includes Aborigines, where the practice is traditional.

          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prevalence_of_circumcision

          I do agree with the “asininity of Christianity”, and I will add, of all other religions too, but circumcision was considered a mutilation in ancient Greece up to this day, and it is actually the main reason that led to the prohibition of circumcision by the Roman Catholic Church.

          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_male_circumcision#Hellenistic_and_Judaic_culture

          There are of course some Christians in the rest of the world that are circumcised, but for many of those, it seems to be for medical reasons or some sort of traditional initiation rite of passage, not something dictated by the “asininity of Christianity.”

          There are also Christian churches or places that are more influenced by the Abrahamic Law than Roman Catholics, so maybe they are closer to the Jewish practice of circumcision too, but it is probably a very small number in the big picture of the whole Christian world.

  5. Breath taking my beautiful statues.
    I believe the adult males were all sculptured with a boy sized ‘bits’ on purpose, as it represented higher culture with more self-control. As opposed to big phalluses of greedy stupid idiots.

    1. It’s too bad you’re just too fucking STUPID to understand what is really going on the world.

      1. Penboy, look, I don’t agree with the way you’re having discussions but I usually agree with what you’re trying to convey. But in this case you just got the numbers wrong. No shame in that.

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prevalence_of_circumcision#Europe

        In Western and Central Europe circumcision of boys for non-medical reasons is absolutely unheard of unless the family is Jewish or Muslim.

        In my country, Germany, for example, only about 10% of boys are circumcised and those are Muslims, Jews and boys who had a phimosis as a kid. Neither Christian nor Atheist families have their children circumcised here.

        I had showers after P.E. and swimming lessons in school, I visit saunas on a regular basis and am an avid nudist. I could count the amount of cut dicks I’ve seen in my life on one hand.

        1. “But in this case you just got the numbers wrong.”
          No I didn’t — primarily because I didn’t use any NUMBERS.

          “only about 10% of boys are circumcised and those are Muslims”
          That’s more bullshit than actual fact. Most publications are notorious for under-counting anything related to anything sexual (and even sensual).

          “In Western and Central Europe circumcision of boys for non-medical reasons is absolutely unheard of unless the family is Jewish or Muslim.”
          And that is EXACTLY what I said — because of RELIGION(S),, you know, Jewish or Muslim. But there are plenty (but not the MAJORITY which I observed) of chrissssstians that circumcise their boys. I take it you don’t watch much porn, do you? Again, majority — no, but a noticeable number of others? YES.

          “Neither Christian nor Atheist families have their children circumcised here.”
          Again, BULLSHIT (about chrisssstians). Just because you haven’t personally SEEN them, doesn’t mean they don’t exist. And I wouldn’t see WHY an atheist family would circumcise their boys — AGAIN, what I said.

          “I had showers after P.E. and swimming lessons in school, I visit saunas on a regular basis and am an avid nudist. I could count the amount of cut dicks I’ve seen in my life on one hand.”
          Really, how fucking stupid are you? Just because YOU CAN’T COUNT THEM ON YOUR HAND,doesn’t mean they don’t exist. And, I KNOW FOR A FACT that you haven’t seen EVERY PART of Germany or SEEN EVERY BOYS’ PENIS. That doesn’t include the PSYCHOLOGICAL ASPECTS of it either — like, being “in a minority of circumcized boys” they may feel ‘shame’ to expose themselves on a beach — and, really how many very young boys do you really LOOK AT for that purpose on a nude beach?

  6. Is everyone missing the “Elephant in the room?” in other words the giant dick at the foot of the older boy statue, the one that wouldn’t be out of place on an Elephant? Lol.

    1. “he giant dick at the foot of the older boy statue, the one that wouldn’t be out of place on an Elephant?”

      Just consider it a dildo of it’s time. :-)))
