Enema Monument

Svetlana Avakina - Monument To The Enema (2008) with nurses at the ready!If you missed this news last week, prepare to suspend your disbelief yet again. The Mashuk Akva-Term Sanatorium in Zheleznovodsk, southern Russia, commissioned sculptress Svetlana Avakina to create the world's first Monument To The Enema (2008) at a cost of $42,000. The bronze syringe bulb weighs 800 pounds. Rather you than me, squire. If the cherubs look rather good, it's because Svetlana based them on Botticelli cherubs. At the unveiling on Wednesday, a banner on the spa wall proclaimed "Let's beat constipation and sloppiness with enemas". I couldn't make this stuff up if I tried!
