Go on! Rub my belly!

Since Pierre seems to be resting, and knowing how impatient you all are for fresh photos (this one is only just over a year old), I thought I would see how many of you have noticed this when you have been walking around the Piazza. Can you see how the belly is polished? This is because there are two rows of columns in front of it, and it is considered bad luck to walk between the columns (like the ones in the Piazzetta). If you find you have inadvertently walked between the columns, you can cancel the bad luck by rubbing the belly on this carving.
It's not a good photo, I'm afraid. I don't like using flash, if I can avoid it.
