What a Hottie, He Throws Lightning!
We're talking about fifth-century BC Greek art in art history survey today, and I have to share on this blog a photo I'm sharing with my class. I took this in the National Museum in Athens in March 2007, wanting to get an oblique back view of the famous Artemision Zeus (he probably was originally throwing a lightning-bolt, now lost). What I didn't notice until I had downloaded the photo to my computer at home was the gaggle of fellow females checking him out. Hilarious!
