    'A row has broken out in Italy after a photographer dressed up a famous 2,500-year-old statue in a leopard-skin thong and pink feather boa.

    The Riace Bronzes, of Greek warriors, are two of the nation's greatest archaeological treasures.'

    The Museum that displays the statue has said the photos are terrible, and a politician's demanding a judicial inquiry.
