EDS NOTE NUDITY - This picture taken on Thursday, Nov. 18, 2010 shows marble statues of Venus and Mars in Rome's Chigi Premier's Palace. Italy's culture ministry is defending Premier Silvio Berlusconi for giving ancient marble statues in his office replacement body parts, to the horror of art restorers. The ministry, which is led by a close ally of the Italian premier, said in a statement Friday, Nov. 19, 2010 that the hand added to Venus and the penis added to Mars are made of resin, attached by magnets and can be removed without damage. less
