Rodin’s “The Thinker” has been altered

It appears that in this reality, Rodin’s “The Thinker” statue has been significantly altered. No longer does he hold a clenched fist to his forehead, but now, appears to be drooling onto his hand.

This is obvious, especially in light of what Rodin himself has said about his own sculpture. I’m willing to bet that no one thinks like this. Notice the right arm crossed over onto the left leg. This seems extremely awkward, and an unusually unnatural position. I am willing to bet that people remember him with his clenched fist pressed up against his forehead. Rodin himself even specifically mentioned the term “clenched fist”:

“What makes my Thinker think is that he thinks not only with his brain, with his knitted brow, his distended nostrils and compressed lips, but with every muscle of his arms, back, and legs, with his clenched fist and gripping toes.”

Here is what the original pose looked like, modeled by George Bernard Shaw:

Now here is some of the fascinating stuff. Call it “residue” if you will. Why would people be posing next to this statue with it clearly in sight, and obviously blunder it:
