I have to say, when I saw the subject of this thread, I thought, "Oh, no. Not again!"

Funny, Bob. Yes, sometimes great art does look like decaptitated naked people. Big Grin

If a sculpture is great art (and some surely are) does it remain great art if it loses its arms (Venus di Milo). How about if it loses its head? And what if only its torso remains? And what if it is put into a crusher and spat out as marble chips?

When does it cease to become art? That might help us with a definition.
