Motor Hotel in Dallas, went to Italy., to buy some
marble. They found what they wanted, in the Carrara
Mountains, near Florence. The marble;-seven blocks
of it;-was hauled to Florence, to be sculpted into
replicas of famous Greek figures. All seven
figures may now be seen at the Cabanna. The last
arrival is the Venus of Medioh a noted work of
Hellenistic art. Unfortunately, she suffered an
accident, somewhere along the way, leaving her with
only one arm, minus the usual number of fingers.
