A nude female statue whose breasts and nether regions had been worn down due to constant groping by visitors in Zhengzhou, Henan province was recently clothed in sheets by a local resident who’d decided enough was enough. Images of the bronze statue and her newfound modesty have gone viral since being shared online on Sunday.
According to a local, an unnamed females in her 20s is responsible for covering up the statue’s lady bits, which had seen plenty of wear-and-tear after years of being fondled by handsy visitors posing for photos.
Apparently the people living nearby are a bunch of prudes. Residents have complained that the scenery along the river bank, where people of all ages usually stroll, used to be beautiful. Locals have described the statue as being “inharmonious” with the surrounding area.
“I feel embarrassed when I pass by with my kid,” a resident told HNR.
One resident, surnamed Liu, pointed out that the statue has been “assaulted” by visitors’ busy hands for quite some time, and hoped that authorities would take care of the situation.
