Why is David talking about an old bronze sculpture, has he
gone crazy? Actually, maybe not, the Capitoline wolf is an iconic
Italian sculpture representing the legend of Romulus and Remus,
abandoned by their evil uncle to die after a bloody palace coup, but
saved by a lactating wolf. The mystery is the age of the sculpture, is
it 2500 years old or about 1000? Why not any dates in between? And what
can science tell us about this sculpture, and what can it not? David
also discusses the danger of a dogma that has infected sculpture theory.
Following this discussion David gives his thoughts on the Brussels and
Lahore terrorist attacks.
