Wondering: Is there a nude statue of Alexander Downer in the heart of Canberra

Alexander Downer is the current Australian Foreign Affairs minister (and renowned pillock).

This sculpture, in the main public plaza in the heart of Canberra was commissioned by his father, Alexander Downer Sr. in 1964 when Downer Jr was around 12.

The good folk at Artwranglers have rightly asked the question - are those the chubby buttocks of our current international face?

Kind of horrible to think about really. (But since the thought got into my head, it seems only fair to share it with you :)

The always awesome Paul Keating summed it all up nicely when he referred to Downer as "the idiot son of the establishment"
