3rd Annual #NAMEthatBUTT: Round 1

Our First Butt of the Season has arrived!
But first --

THE RULES:
  • Comments will be moderated.  You will NOT see your comment appear immediately after posting! 
  • I post a butt and clues, you guess who that butt belongs to in the comments. If you guess right, you get 5 points. 
  • There may be a bonus clue posted on Wednesdays over at blog.amaliacarosella.com -- when applicable they will be announced on Tuesday in the main post and instructions for how to bonus it up will be included in the bonus post!
  • If you CORRECTLY identify the artistic work (title/artist) in question, you earn a bonus 5 points total: 2.5 for title, 2.5 for artist. (Provided of course, that it differs from the subject's name alone and the artist is known at all)
  • The following Friday, I reveal the full backside image of the sculpture in question! If at this time you can correctly identify artist/title/subject of the piece, you can earn up to 3 points (total -- 1 point for artist, 1 point for title, 1 point for subject) 
  • You may guess artist/title/subject/book from which I've quoted until the next round of NAME THAT BUTT begins. (Usually the next Tuesday -- I'll reveal the previous week's sculpture and offer the next butt for guessing!)
  • I'll keep a running tally of correct answers/points.
  • For Olympians, Greek AND Roman names are acceptable for the subject guesses. For example, if the butt belongs to Mercury, I will also accept Hermes as a correct answer. Titles of works must be exact, however.
  • A new NAME THAT BUTT may NOT be posted every week, depending on Things, but it's my hope they will be. 
  • There will be Prizes at the finish. They will be shipped internationally. I haven't decided what they'll be yet, but for sure they will include #NAMEthatBUTT postcards/stickers.



Your Clues:


  1. A beauty of a butt, with a fondness for a particularly inscribed fruit!
  2. No man can resist the charms of this butt, but one lover of this backside is still often named when discussing a perfect specimen of male beauty. They made a lovely match, while it lasted!


And you'll get a bonus clue tomorrow at blog.amaliacarosella.com -- a quote from one of my books, related to the butt in question! Guess which book in the comments (of either blog) and get an extra 2 bonus points!

  5. Aphrodite! No idea on the artist/title, though knowing Aphrodite it's probably something about bathing. Or being nude. Or bathing nude. :P
