Ceres, goddess of agriculture (I had to look that one up), also lives in Letniy Sad. I was talking to a graduate student in sociology who works at the Museum of Ethnography and had the good fortune to walk through Letniy Sad with some or other French expert of sculpture and she said the sculptures currently on display were disastrously bad. She said the original sculptures in Peter the Great’s collection were taken off display because they were just too valuable. She said these sculptures are too clean and have extremely terrible proportions. As a sculpture layman, it all looks fine to me and I can’t tell the difference between good proportions and bad proportions.
