“Drunken Satyr” / selfie mishap

On Tuesday, March 18th, 2014, this statue - a 19th-century plaster casting of a work dating back to the Hellenistic era - was damaged while on view at the Academy of Fine Arts Brera in Milan, Italy. According to security, the statue’s leg shattered under the weight of an unidentified student who had climbed onto it in the hopes of taking an amusing selfie.
