Ogle Without Reproach: The Solution

Do you worry that you’re stripping Richard Armitage of his dignity? Do strangers insist that you are somehow harming the man?* ย Well, I have the solution for you!

Richard Armitage Statues:

Now you can stare for hours on end and no one will think anything of it. It’s art after all.

    I LOVE this. And I didn’t feel guilty beforehand, either.

    • Thanks, Serv. I don’t know where this idea came from, but it seemed kind of appropriate. Plus I had a lot of fun making it!

  2. Obscura

    Genius! Does it come in bronze?

  3. Snickers' Mom

    Does it come in pants-free version????? ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ll wait here to be chastised by any number of people.

    • Servetus

      Yeah, I have to say before purchasing that I feel like the crinkle of the jeans on this status may potentially exaggerate the dimension of the bulge. Is the rock cut to laser accurate specifications?

    • Damn! If only I has such an image to work with!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ *Looks around for those who would chastise, nope, they know better than to comment here.*

  4. You know…I love statues…I especially love the way the stone feels under my hand! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. JasRangoon’s Richard … akin to that other guy’s David? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Me too! Lol! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • The “me too” comment was meant to be to Jas above! Got carried away with thoughts of feeling up the hot…I mean cool stonework!

      As for David…I suspect this may be bigger in some areas *blushes* ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Servetus

        I have to laugh b/c I wrote a long post about the statue you’re referring to and whether art historians think that it was appreciated via ogling …

        {blows own horn: http://meandrichard.wordpress.com/2011/10/07/on-the-genesis-of-perving-ad-quod-respondit-servetus-two/ }

        but I think part of what evokes a similarity is that head position in both figures. They’re not looking the same way, but they have kind of the same angle, and the “I’m in charge, what’s it to you” facial expression is not dissimilar.

      • Feeling up the hot man…err, stonework would make most of us get carried away! ๐Ÿ˜‰ If only we had some way to compare this statue to David, purely for academic reasons of course. ๐Ÿ™‚

        • Of course! Can’t think of any other reasons…. *might be fibbing* ๐Ÿ˜‰

        • Servetus

          scholarship is important if you want to pass on important lessons to the next gen.

    • LOL! I think we could all understand if it became more famous…and it wouldn’t be because of my mad skills. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. I love it, too! And I don’t–and didn’t–feel guilty either. I’ve always said somebody should sculpt or paint the man. He’s just so beautiful *sigh* *thud* *drool* *pant* *objectify*

  7. If I didn’t love the fandom before…

    *gives Jas a sloppy smooch on the forehead*

    • I’m glad you like him, Jazzy! Now if you’ll excuse me, I think I need to go find a paper towel. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. Leigh

    Love it! May I submit an application for membership in the ASS? Nothing about which to feel guilty, so why spend time on that when I could be feeling good about Richarding? Richard is definitely better built and proportioned than David in every way. I’ve kidded Fedoralady before that if the sculpture were bronze and where observers could reach, the arse would be polished to a shine by hands.

    • LOL, Leigh! I’m laughing so hard at the idea of a bronze Richard with shiny buns. ๐Ÿ™‚ Consider your application accepted. The A.S.S. is an inclusive lot…you just have to participate in regular ogling of Richard. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Servetus

        Over the years, as the statue acquired a patina, parts would turn greenish, while the parts most often caressed would remain shiny.

  9. katie70

    I need one of these for my flower garden, next to my greece goddess would be perfect. I would have to get a couple white rose bushes to go next to him also. I would be able to see him from in the house too.

    • Ooh, perfect! Then all the neighbors could admire your statue too! That would be quite the lovely view from the house, although you might be staring out the window more often than you should. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  10. Pure genius! Like Michaelangelo’s David, without the guilt.

    • Guilt? What guilt? ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Servetus

        No guilt, seriously. I think people get taught that at the time they were created, those figures were not sexualized but appreciated solely as art. Art historians no longer think that’s universally true.

        • obscura

          That is certainly true…especially in the case of ancient sculpture…(David is Michelangelo’s interpretation of that style).sculpture reflects the standard of beauty which reflects what people found aesthetically pleasing and sexually attractive. The bigger thing to note is that there was no guilt or shame attached to sexuality. Ogle on people…ego te absolvo ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Teuchter

    I’d love it if someone really did sculpt Richard and for many reasons, not the least being that I believe his body is infinitely more beautiful over all than Michelangelo’s David, at least judging by what we have seen of it – Richard’s that is – and that’s quite a bit! The rest we can only guess at! ๐Ÿ™‚
