Time for Another Shot of Neptune

Nathalie of Spacedlaw recently posted a different view of the original Neptune fountain in Bologna, Italy of which the one in PVE is a replica. (You can click on 'fountain' under labels for my previous posts of the fountain.)

An more wizened rendition of Neptune can be found on Marley's Cheltenham DP.

I know I've seen many more on the CDP portal. Does your city have a Neptune?

Love this photo, Tash.

Nice butt!
(I got loads of pictures banned from Photobucket because they were statues' backsides. Go figure...)

The city I grew up in (Nancy, in France) has a very nice Neptun fountain.

There used to be a magnificent Adonis in Nice but it was removed in the 1970s lest its nakedness offend the local citizens..I see the people of PV are not so narrow minded!

that fish is rather suggestive...

My word is assity (really)

Virginia said...

Heck no all we have is Vulcan. All I can say is your Neptune has been working out with "Buns of Steel" for sure!!!

PS I don't believe AH had assity for her word for one minute.

altadenahiker said...

Did too, butt-head.

This is far from a bum photo (groan - couldn't resist!)

Thanks for the link :)

Maya said...

You know, I haven't seen one here. Hmmmm. I like the way each muscle is so defined.

Petrea said...

I see Neptune has been working out.

I've never heard of "assity," but I've heard of "assholity."

Lisa Wilson said...

My city definitely does not have a Neptune, or anything similar to it. Thanks for sharing!

Love this fountain. But why this photograph has been taken from back side?

I've really enjoyed your photos of this guy! I especially liked the one where he was poking the moon. I got a funny one of him with a crow on his head. Keep up the good work!

No, Tash. Sadly, very sadly, we do not have a Neptune. But I wish we did!
