Michelangelo’s David got censored: No marble junk for CCTV viewers

Remember Kate Winslet’s censored-out boobs in Titanic 3D? if you think that is overreaction, take a look at this.

Exhibition “A Renaissance in Florence: Masterpieces and Protagonists” is now open at the National Museum of China in Beijing. The exhibition features works of Da Vinci, Michelangelo and Raphael, many of which have never been outside Italy. These Florence protagonists apparently received some very Chinese treatments…like mosaicing nudity when on TV…

You know, David, if Chinese men were allowed to see 3D boobs, then Chinese women cannot be allowed to see Italian junk. Some times you gotta love CCTV, China Central Television.

Video of the news clip. From 00:45


To give you a flavor of how Chinese netizens have been ridiculing the mosaic:

PuppY雲菲: “They should also put mosaic over all the government official faces appearing in news. They are far more disgusting.”

恨娘娘的大叔: “Why mosaic? They should cut it off directly!”
