And this is why you don’t touch things in museums, Part 2

Academy of Fine Arts, BreraWe all know not to touch works of art in museums. Or, at least most of us know this. A student on a quest for a fabulous selfie, however, seems to have missed that lesson: the student, who was visiting the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera, climbed onto a sculpture of the “Drunken Satyr,” a 19th-century copy of an ancient Greek original. We don’t yet know if he was able to get the shot but we do know that the his weight “amputated” the leg of the satyr (see pic).
