Synopsis: A life-size bronze statue of a naked youth, in Viena’s Kunsthistoriche Museum, thought for several centuries to be a Roman-age original, after recent chemical analysis using modern technology, turned out to be a bronze cast from the Renaissance period only.

This is the case history brought to debate in Phallacy, a play where similarities and differences between science and art are given focus.
