A lady told me that the statue is magnificent from the back but the front aspect is very disappointing.:E

Drapes and City: Is that what they mean by a high aspect ratio?

I've never liked Mike's statue of David. The anatomical disproportion just gets on my nerves. In proportion to the rest of his body, absolutely no man on the planet has ever hands as big as that.

Seriously, though. ;)

I dunno. Maybe you should check the mits of some rugby players - they've got to be dinner plates to hold a rugger ball in one hand while running full-tilt at the oppo's.
