The Real Reason Why Statues Always Have Really Tiny Johnsons

I have to admit that I’ve never really been too fussed by museums. I don’t really get society’s fascination with them. I may be 23 but I’d much rather spend my time hanging around the gift shop than shuffling behind a whole bunch of tourists as they gaze at “cultural treasures” – which could potentially be forgeries anyway.

However, when I do venture into the artistic part of town, I can’t help but find my eyes drifting over a particular part of the ancient statues that I come across. I am of course referring to their little packages. I’m not a perv or anything, they all just seem to be exceptionally small. Therefore, I am drawn to them. Take this guy for example.


Next time you’re in a museum, ensure you head straight to the antiquities section to scope out the barrage of tiny Johnsons that will inevitably be lurking ahead. Just like this little one. It’s kind of cute really.

Actually I’m not sure “cute” is the right word to use here. What even is that? Sculptors could have made their statue’s members any size they wanted to. But more often than not, they opted for ones like the two featured above. Why is this? Well, the answer is actually a little more complicated than you might think….
