Are these the ancient nude statue pics that prompted the Plano ISD to remove a textbook?

Perhaps you’ve heard about how the Plano Independent School District recently decided to remove a humanities textbook because it contains photos of ancient nude sculptures. Earlier today, the district reversed itself, in the wake of an online campaign accusing it of censorship.

Anyhow, as far as we can tell, none of the media outlets covering this story have provided examples of the ancient nude statue photos in question. So, in an effort to fulfill our role as the gay paper, we went looking for them ourselves.

While we can’t seem to find the exact edition of the book online, here’s what we came up with from another edition that’s posted on the Google Books site.
