Hi Alexander, How anyone managed to climb up there and bend this bronze bow, is difficult to understand as the whole area is covered with security TV cameras. :) regard scally.

Regards, Brian.

A drunken wally climbed up to the statue of Girolamo Savonarola in Ferrara and tried to hang on the monk's two little fingers. The wally fell of course, but with Savonarola's fingers in his hands. For a few months there was a scaffolding around the statue with the following inscription: "The City of Ferrara project of the restauration of Savonarola's fingers". I laughed for weeks, every time I saw it.

I think the Bow is still Broken Nachtmusik. In Glasgow the drinkers insist thatWellington. keeps on his hat! How they climb up there drunk I have no idea, but I would have trouble getting up sober, With a ladder. LOL cheers scally.

Nachtmusik on March 15, 2011

You had me laugh out loud with Lord Welly's hat. I find it quite fascinating that drunk people can climb the most incredible places, not rarely fall down and get away with just a scratch or two. Even the Ferrara dipstick got no particular injuries. I am quite confident that they themselves have no idea at all how they got up there in the first place :) Cheers

Many Moons ago, Nachtmusik, I ran a wee Austin car into a Telegraph pole, I had just stopped smoking and had started the Summer holidays. The car was a write off the Pole was halved and when I woke up the next day all I had was a wee nick in my nose, and this was the time of no seat belts? I was so drunk on Vodka ( no great smell) I got away with it, excepted for a Large bill for replacing a pole at double time on a Sunday! and a very expensive and restricted policy on renewal. Cheers scally.

Wow this is great! the statue of Eros in Piccadilly Circus London ... I remember the photo of Pink Floyd! LIKE. Cheers Marisol

Hi Marisol, they have not repaired the Bow yet, It must annoy the London girls that cupid can not shoot arrows through boys hearts. :-( best regards scally.

Dida from Augsburg on April 4, 2011

Oh yes scally, this is a big problem! Who will avenge me now? LOL

I like him anyway!

Cheers, Dida

Harry Taggart on April 4, 2011

I see you have checked out his proper name Dida. The people of London think that it is his brother Eros? so his disarmament has no effect on the Population of London ( 10 million and rising} LOl cheers scally.
