The art of being naked!



No, it was not I who was naked, but these statues and sculptures everywhere in Barcelona. They captured my curiosity. Why  are they naked? Can you see what they wanted to convey to the tourists? To my relief, the people who lives there are not naked, although the temperature can inspires someone to do so:) 

Anyway, we can all agree that we are naked, naked in the eyes of God who sees all things. I included qoutes from the living word of God so that we can have an idea how God  looks at us.

See these pictures as a part of Barcelona's culture.


































Have a wonderful day:)

  1. From I can understand, it seems it's one of the popular forms of art in history. It's been done even when art was limited to basic drawings and badly formed pottery.

    1. I agree with Adam. Even competing in the Olympics, athletes did it in the nude. The human body is the most beautiful subject in any art form, media, genres and style.

    3. Yes. They have been doing it since the ancient Greek history. Naked Arts.

      In addition to that (although not included in the pictures above), the reason why they make the male genitals quite shorter than the actual ones is that they consider larger ones as gross or comical.
