Not all French boys are naughty!

Overheard at the Tuleries gardens, on a sunny and spring-air-filled Easter Monday afternoon stroll. Two French boys aged somewhere between 7 and 10 climb the above portrayed statue entitled "Jeune fille allongée" by Aristide Maillol (1861-1944).

Boy 1: "Have you seen her breasts?!" asks, while grabbing them at the same time.
Boy 2: "Yeah, they are huge!!"
Boy 1: "She must be a mum..."

...and off they go.

Meanwhile, Milo could only reach the bronze toes of the statue and was trying stubbornly to bite them off.

Oh...the Tuleries! I remember that it was no long ago that I nearly froze to death walking the famous trek from the Louvre, to the Carrousel, through the Tuleries, to the Place de la Concorde, down the Champs Elysses, to the Arc de Triomphe. I was cold, but I had a great time just being in Paris. I can't wait to go back! I miss it a lot from time to time!

This is such a great anecdote!!! do you think they had breastfeeding in mind or just older, motherly women with large chests?
