This Guy is Having a Bad Day!
On the way out of the exhibits I was visiting, I walked past this statue, which has been here forever, I guess. I was taken by the extreme emotion, so first I photographed the sculpture, then read about it. Whoo boy, this guy is in trouble. This is the satyr Marsyas who challenged the god Apollo to a musical competition. The god triumphed and then punished his challenger by skinning him alive! Yikes! Now, THAT is a bad day!
