    Of course, it's a Rockwell.

    I'm sure the scales are way too heavy.

    With the tang covered it would be hard to tell.

    The modern razor ruins that sculpture for me.

    I think it's the Museum of Modern Art? What is the date of the statue?
    Mebbe that razor was used to shear Sampson's locks? In modern times, of course..

    Maybe it's a Samson shavette?

    Don't know what she shaved with it but it sure has plenty of hair around it.

    Hmm.. she used a modern razor back in biblical times?

    Actually that statue was made in the late 1800s.
