La Bocca della Verità (English: the Mouth of Truth) is an image, carved from Pavonazzo marble, of a man-like face, located in the portico of the church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin in Rome, Italy. The sculpture is thought to be part of a first-century ancient Roman fountain, or perhaps a manhole cover, portraying one of several possible pagan gods, probably Oceanus. Most Romans believe that the ‘Bocca’ represents the ancient god of the river Tiber.

Place your hand in the mouth of the statue and tell your lover how much you love him or her.
If you’re lying, the statue will bite your hand off!
If it doesn’t, you’re telling the truth!
A typical italian seduction trick??
