Trivia: Pose At Your Own Risk

Napolean's sister happily posed as Venus for a famous nude statue.  The same famous sculptor, Antonio Canova had Napolean pose nude as a heroic Mars.  Napolean was so embarrassed by the result that he kept the statue in the closet.  The Duke of Wellington, when he was given the statue, was not so embarrassed, and you can still see it as his house.  Via StrategyPage.
