Just A H'armless Piece Of Fun

Not completely satisfied with my entry and will no doubt edit it later!                       

What a pure iconic stance
draws in her presence at first glance
Why would some then interfere
this carving that one holds so dear

The oooh's and aaahhh's reverberate 
his wanton need to recreate
Poor Venus didn't  have much choice, 
missing limbs and missing voice

With chisel, clay and crazy stare,
true artisan's should be aware 
She's made into some household drawers,
if able she'd have called her lawyers!

What's kept inside no doubt is treasure,
could fill a Goddess with such pleasure
He's even managed to imbed
a smaller box in her forehead

So is this art, or madman's pallete
chipping with those wooden mallets
Would Venus dismiss Dali charms
or welcome him with open arms?
