All worthy art, it's said, is open to interpretation. Where one person sees an inflatable christmas tree, another, no doubt, notices a giant green plug for your rectum. Naturally.
At least in Paris’ Place Vendome, where a hugely controversial sculpture by American artist Paul McCarthy offended anal right-wing groups enough that it was vandalized over the weekend. The culprits allegedly unplugged the air pump keeping the structure upright; then, as a security guard fixed it back in place, they cut the 79ft-tall sculpture’s supporting wires.
Reduced to a green blob, the ruined sculpture was in such bad shape that it was deflated and swiftly removed from the square.
