Much Ado About Adam

Maybe it’s my post-modern sensibility, but I think it would have been far more interesting for the Met to have simply displayed Tullio Lombardo’s broken statue in its fractured state…

The elaborate restoration process seems entirely pointless. Why shouldn’t the damaged form of the iconic High Renaissance statue speak to us directly in its present, shattered context? As a work of art, to me, that would be far more relevantly poignant and significant.
