That is actually a great marketing response to a business problem. I applaud whoever came up with that creative idea. Upvoted.

Last time I was in Vienna I went to the Kunsthistorisches Museum & saw the Venus of Willendorf (among the other exhibits) - it is absolutely tiny, like pocket-sized, ~5" tall. I just never knew that every photo of the thing was an extreme close-up.

I've been asured this isn't censorship, because only governments can censor.
I've also been assured that this is merely being "shown the door" when someone has found your work offensive.

Yawn.

You and everyone else here knows the account only likely got auto-blocked because their booby-detection software detected boobies. They'll unblock it soon enough. In the meantime they executed an amusing response that earned them some funny media coverage.

You by comparison remain the same tired & tiresome old, aggrieved victim of the world around you that you ever were.

To back off slightly, and look at bigger implications, the concept that anything sufficiently old becomes notable and impossible to censor has some pretty funny aftereffects.

Probably a bunch of assholes who think it's funny to complain about stuff so that it gets taken down, rather than actual prudes complaining about nudity.

Thanks for holding the fort GreginIndy. I also look forward to arriving in progressive utopia. When we get there, no woman will fear objectification, or being subjected to the sight of a distressingly attractive/confidence sapping body type. All will have beautiful head to toe flowing gowns, with viewing screens, in the latest fashions. And men will be kept separate and apart from them. To avoid leering, and the incidence of lascivious and personage demeaning proposition. It will be a liberal paradise.

I've seen a few of these "fertility goddesses" statues/statuettes.
My assumption is that they were designed based on the physique of women who've had 15 babies, hence veneration of the fertility part.

It's meant to be hand-held.  I assume you understand what the other hand is busy doing.

The opposite is David's Coronation of Napoleon in the Louvre, which the average person only ever sees in book size, but in real life the thing is about the size of a barn.

Disturbingly-accurate analysis.

Now I have to find something else to fap to.

That's a total of 11 to 12 years of pregnancy, not counting time between.  Any woman who can manage 15 pregnancies without modern medical care deserves statues much bigger than 5 inches.

On a related subject, my wife assured me than less than 5 inches is perfectly okay and she's very happy.
