    In April, a museum in Yorkshire, England launched #CuratorBattle contest, while trying to grab the attention of art-lovers worldwide in the midst of the global coronavirus pandemic. Some of the contest themes caused a lot of interest, and not only among avid museum-goers.

    When a Yorkshire museum suggested a #BestMuseumBum as a part of its “Curator Battle” online competition it probably did not expect such a strong response from galleries, museums and netizens from all over the world.

    Art fans did not hesitate to share on Twitter pics of some of the most-captivating statues from behind - and some intriguing postures as well.

    The Netherlands’ Freedom Museum even shared a satirical “anti-Hitler Pin Cushion” statuette from the United States that allowed its owners to do some real picky moves towards the Fuhrer’s bottom part.

    Some images of statues with remarkable butts also came from outside gardens and art spaces. And even though the theme of #CuratorBattle has changed several times since it was first introduced in June, it looks like it has remained a most popular one.
