If the statute represents some Babylonian god of liberty or justice, I'd send out an APB to find the Democrat responsible for spiting the face with reckless or wanton disregard for the nose.

Oh, it's Socrates? Then I guess the face spiting reference refers to wisdom.

The prior picture refers to Socrates. The current one is some Roman/Greek noble. I'm pretty sure the face spiting has more to do with 2,000 years of classical era statues being abused and neglected than with Democrats.
