NAME that BUTT: Stage Two, Round 4!

Last week's butt was Farnese Hercules! (And way to go Faithlessone for guessing it just from the butt shot!!) 

Stage Two Rules:
  • I post a butt and some clues, you guess who that butt belongs to in the comments. If you guess right, you get 5 points. (No bonus for being first.)
  • Comments are moderated, which means they sit in my inbox quietly until I choose to publish them, so you won't see anyone else's guesses.
  • HOWEVER, if you CORRECTLY identify the artistic work in question, you earn a bonus 5 points. (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 subject, along with the full backside image of the sculpture in question! If at this point you can correctly identify artist/title of the piece, you can earn an additional 2.5 points, and you may guess artist/title until the next round of NAME THAT BUTT begins.
  • I'll keep a running tally of correct answers/points, with occasional updates of who is "winning."
  • For Olympians, Greek AND Roman names are acceptable, because half of these sculptures were probably titled with their Roman names but in my head, they immediately translate to the Greek, and that's how I remember them when I'm organizing my photos.
  • The game will continue for as long as I have photographs of backsides to share, but a new NAME THAT BUTT may not be posted every week, depending on Things. 
THIS IS THE LAST BUTT BEFORE THE NAME THAT BUTT FINALE! (Also, it does not have an artist so there are only 5 points available total!)

Are you ready?

Let's go!

Your Clues:

  1. This butt holds the title of Fairest, though some other butts might dispute it.
  2. The backside in question may or may not have been absorbed into the cult of The Virgin, as Christianity rose.
  3. This fabulously dimpled fanny tends to make war through love.

You have until September 19, 11:59pm

Also, don't forget to tune in on the 19th for a very special Valkyrie post because we have been seriously lacking in the Norse Myth department around these parts. 


Comments are Love!

(Nota Bene: During #NAMEthatBUTT season, all comments are moderated and your guesses are hidden until after the butt is revealed!)
