"The bolts that fix her flesh to her frame have been shaved, and pounded with precision." Sounds kinda dirty to me.

/just saying...

Sounds like the three guys that trucked her off just didn't want to pay for that Amazonian RealDoll...

Hollosy said her name is Eos, better known on the mythical Mount Olympus as the Goddess of Dawn.

So why are they calling her an Amazon?

step 0001> Steal 700 pound statue
step 0010> ???
step 0011> Profit

/sorry, someone had to do it.

Im sorry, but this thread is worthless without pics.
2004-09-02 07:11:51 PM  
I can't see why anyone would want to steal a bronze statue. My heart really goes out to this guy, having one of his prized possessions that he worked on extremely hard stolen in the name of vandalism.
2004-09-02 07:12:09 PM  
No pics because it was stolen. Duh
2004-09-02 07:12:43 PM  
His hands molded, shaped and hammered every each inch of her frame in 1981.

Man, this guy was lonely in 1981.

Isn't it playing at the Open?

She probably was one of the inspirations for the Amazon myth.

And may I say, we need some damn pics!
2004-09-02 07:20:56 PM  
I don't really want pics. I would have put /obligatory, but I don't know how to spell it. So I didn't. I'm not REALLY gonna kill kittens for a... statue. Unless it's a really hot statue!

And I bet the guy had pictures of his work, too. If he had shown it, maybe we could spot it!

Not to sterotype ANYONE , but I would check any of the nearby colleges , especially around the frat houses.

/just sayin'

Her face appears without emotion, with little detail but robust with a divas nonchalance.

Robust nonchalance? WTF?

Not the statue in question, but by the same artist:

Hmmmm, 700lb nude Amazon. . . . sounds like my composition prof.
2004-09-02 07:51:57 PM  
Q: What do you do with a 700 lb amazon?
A: Snoo Snoo!

/Femputer: The one called Zapp will snoo-snoo with the large women. The one called Fry will snoo-snoo with the petit women. And the one called Kiff, being the most attractive, will snoo-snoo with the most beautiful women on Amazonia, then with the large women, then with the petit women, and, once more, with the large women.

Looks like an armadillo orgy, Chec.

Another UWAP article.

Wanted for questioning:

i'd hit it, with a 100 pound penis.
2004-09-02 08:35:20 PM  
"That's a HUGE biatch!"
2004-09-02 10:02:42 PM  
"The Statue of Liberty had no comment."
2004-09-02 10:08:32 PM  
I'm guessing she looked a bit like this

2004-09-02 10:51:23 PM  
I'd smelt it!

NarrMaster: The Amazon legend was inspired by nomadic tribes of female warriors, Slavic if memory serves. It's not likely that a legend would be inspired by another, similarly fictional story within the same cultural set, though I wouldn't rule it out as a possibility.

The real Amazons (missing-boobies) didn't hack off their right boob to shoot their bows better, though. Nobody's really sure where the Greeks came up with that part.

But just as soon as the magic is applied, that 700-pound statue will become a 120-pound Wonder Woman.
2004-09-03 08:38:28 AM  
JangoFett I concur, amazons are not goddesses, nor vice versa. Probably an article written by a product of the Amuriken edumahcational process. I'm sure he felt good self-esteem.

"famed sculptor E. Gyuri Hollosy" -- who??

I for one wish to welcome out new 700 pound amazonian overlords. {When does the snu-snu begin?}

Here is the artist's site ( with a gallery )
