ART HANDLERS


BoteroHandsOn

So I was in New York City last weekend to play a jazz gig (I’m a drummer) and a friend took me into Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle to show me two famous sculptures: Fernando Botero’s “Adam” and “Eve,” which are 12 feet tall, naked, and massively, bulbously erotic in Botero’s style. Turns out, though, that Adam’s protruding penis looks way more worn than the rest of him — because it has become popular for passersby to grab his johnson and pose for photos. Some say it’s good luck, although I’m guessing it has more to do with plain old sex play.
