Qatar Sends Nude Greek Statues Back to Greece …(They’re Too Seductive to Women)
Qatar sent an Olympic statue exhibit back to Greece after refusing to display two statues of nude Olympic athletes.
The display was meant to ‘open a bridge of friendship’ between the countries.
Gulf News reported, via Religion of Peace:
Greece has pulled two ancient statues of nude males from an Olympic exhibition in Doha after Qatari authorities insisted on veiling them.
A Culture Ministry official says exhibition organisers wanted to avoid scandalising female visitors.
Greek Deputy Culture Minister Costas Tzavaras, who visited the country last month for the exhibition opening, objected, saying the works should be displayed as they were or shipped home.
So the statues were returned to Athens last week, the official said on condition of anonymity.
