A lightning strike blew a woman's stone sculpture in Northern Territory but her breasts survived the assault unscathed.
Stonemasonry boss Tom Finlay, 48, was standing 50m from his voluptuous hand-carved Venus de Milo, when a lightning bolt sent stone flying through the air, the Daily Telegraph reported.
According to the Northern Territory News, Finlay said that he was amazed that the stone sculpture's 30kg breasts had survived the phenomenon.
The 1.5m high sculpture, made of local porcelanite, stood on a 6m steel reinforced column before it was destroyed.
Shattered stone were strewn about the small courtyard at Finlay's Stonemasonry - near the Stuart Hwy, at Yarrawonga - where the top half of the headless Venus was obliterated about 2.45pm on Friday.
