A 230-year-old statue depicting a Roman goddess has been scribbled over with blue crayons, with the culprits believed it to be of a group of children.
The Roman Naiade, Sabrina sculpture, sculpted by John Bacon and considered to be of historical significance, is situated in the gardens of Croome Court in south Worcestershire.
The statue is located around a mid-18th-century Neo-Palladian mansion, surrounded by expansive parkland, as reported by the Mirror. According to reports, the incident involving blue crayon marks on the statue occurred after the distribution of activity packs that contained blue crayons during the Easter period.
Additionally, earlier this month, a memorial dedicated to the famous landscape architect Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown was also defaced.
