The good news is that the broken hand was not part of the original statue and had been restored years earlier.
Wow...that reminds me of THE NECKLACE by Guy De Maupassant.  All that fuss and bother over a "fake".

  We've cast the world, we've set the stage,
  for what could be, the darkest age...

I was wondering why there was a reinforcing rod sticking out. Didn't seem like standard Renaissance practice.

Regardless of the authenticity one simply shouldn't touch stuff that doesn't belong to them. My Mom taught me this when I was 4 or 5 years old for goodness sakes.
