IN Italy there is outrage over the government's desperate attempt to prevent embarrassment for the visiting president of Iran by HIDING NUDE STATUES at the Capitoline Museum.
We suggest that next time they should dress the statues in modern street clothes.
French photographer Léo Caillard and art director Alexis Persani have created a tongue-in-cheek photo series that depicts ancient Louvre’s sculptures wearing modern day clothing.
With the power of a camera and photoshop, these guys show how hilarious two worlds of old and new look combined.
They call the series STREET STONE and the incident in Rome shows how timely it is.
We wonder what the sculptors would think if they saw their creations donning hipster chic clothing and accessories. We'd say either rolling in their graves or laughing hysterically.
It's actually quite amazing how the addition of the clothing instantly gives these guys and girls a personality very separate from the one they had before.
They gain a bit of edge mixed with some androgynous sex appeal.
This idea could spawn an entire new clothing line. Stone Stylings: Extremely uncomfortable clothing for those who don't move.
