Russian Spa Erects Monument to the Enema

June 19, 2008

A monument to the enema has been unveiled at a spa in the southern Russian city of Zheleznovodsk. The bronze syringe bulb, which weighs 800 pounds and is held by three angels, was unveiled at the Mashuk-Akva Term spa. The Caucasus Mountains region is known for dozens of spas where enemas with water from mineral springs are routinely administered to treat digestive and other complaints and issues.

A representative of the spa said the monument cost $42,000 and was installed in a square in front of his spa. A banner declaring: “Let’s beat constipation and sloppiness with enemas”, an allusion to a line from “The Twelve Chairs,” a famous Soviet film comedy, was posted on one of the spa’s walls.

Sculptor Svetlana Avakina said she designed the 5-foot-high monument with “irony and humor”. She added that she modeled the angels on those in works by Italian Renaissance painter Alessandro Botticelli.
