Myron Shanghaied

Myron - The Discus Thrower (ca 450 BC)Now here is a world famous sculpture of undeniable quality: Myron's The Discus Thrower (ca 450 BC). The British Museum in London has lent it to Shanghai, together with more than a hundred sculptures and pots from ancient Greece, to give Chinese folks a taste of the origins of the Olympic Games. The boy is asking the usual question.
"Mum, why's he got a leaf on his..."
"Don't point, Chang. It's rude."
