I've just been searching for famous animal statues after seeing a GoFundMe for a bronze cat statue.

I believe the "animal head got re-chiseled" myth

so where do we stand on restoration of ancient monuments
shouldn't we want to bring them back to their former glory rather than watch them rot
>>
>>3648663
I haven't read much on it but it could be the Catholic Church's doing, they like breaking the noses off ancient pagan statues

>shouldn't we want to bring them back to their former glory
No because there's no real way to know how they looked originally and improvising or tacking on a copy would only bastardize the original
The absolute best we can do is preserve what we have as it is, preventing further damage

What the hell are you people on about? The theory about it being a dog originally is that the head broke off thousands of years before Jesus or Muhammad were born and the Egyptians redid it.

That is not an animal, silly

My favorite so far is the 20 door tall puppy named Sun Spot sitting out in front of the city shelter. It's a wireframe that is covered entirely with polished stainless steel dog tags
