A statue of Peter Pan giving Wendy her kiss will soon get a tiny angry addition: "The new statue will be attached to the existing Peter Pan. The jealous fairy will be shown trying to wrest a thimble given him by Wendy, in lieu of a kiss, from Peter's finger." This 18-cm addition changes the sculpture from one about the pubescent dawn of attraction, to the older generation's jealous fight against that moment. Can we do the same to other sculptures. Maybe we should be adding something other than a cigarette to Oscar Wilde's statue?
