Student Takes Selfie, Destroys Statue

Amputated, without a leg, that


Amputated, without a leg, that's how a life-size plaster statue dating back to the beginning of the 19th century was found by the staff of the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera in Milan.

Allegedly a student, presumably a foreign student, climbed on the statue to take a selfie and caused the statue's left leg to fall off. The statue is in the corridor of Brera Academy and it is a copy of the original Barberini Faun or Drunken Satyr dating back to the late third or early second century BCE and located in the Glyptothek in Munich Germany.
