If I recall correctly, its by a really old church. I went on a city tour when I was there a couple years ago and they said it basically just appeared overnight back in the olden days and was believed to be some sort of silent protest against the church's stand on prostitution. No one even knows who's boob the cast is made from, and they didn't take it out because of the mystery of it.

Is it a man touching a boob or is my mind just corrupt?

This is one of a series of bronze statues/public art around Amsterdam, of which the maker is officially unknown and which "appeared" overnight. Some say it is our former Queen Beatrix, others say that is bullshit. She does have a certain fondness for making sculptures, so it could be true.

Other art in the series are the "Hurried Man" at Tweede Marnixplantsoen and the "Guy cutting Tree Branch" ...

Where in Amsterdam did you find this? Do you remember the street? I'll seek it out when I go there with my girlfriend in July. I'm sure she'll be thrilled when I'm searching for a boob being groped on the ground haha.

Touching a boob or face palm?

It's a little-known side effect of the "Philadelphia experiment".

The only thing that comes to mind right now is that episode of Dr. Who with the girl who was stuck in the sidewalk.

"How do I find the red-light district?"

Kalbuddy 06/11/2013

There is some serious symbolism in that sculpture.

vawdit 06/11/2013

I saw this when i saw there... good times.

Petit_Caca 06/11/2013

I remember walking by this and thought it was odd that not more than a few feet from the church walls were red light prostitutes.

TatuLover 06/12/2013

I remember seeing that when I was REALLY high the last time I was in Amsterdam. I think I stared at it for about 20 minutes before moving on and getting some delicious shawarma.

blazinazn007 06/12/2013

I too, had a tour guide point this out to me.

chanbrochill17 06/12/2013
