A sculpture in a Norfolk gallery caused a stir among some residents in November forcing the removal of the Buddha statue. Police told staff that the figure was offensive.
The piece was called A Trilogy: The Iconoclasts and it featured the religious figure with it’s genitals comprised of a banana and eggs!
In other strange statue news:
Yorkshire residents were bemused by the appearance of 19 carved stone heads. The heads were adorned with a symbol that seemed to spell Paradox. The heads showed up in Goathland, Kilburn, Rotherham and Arthrington and they had a note attached which read “Twinkle twinkle like a star, does love blaze less from afar?”
Were these stone heads a message for a loved one? Perhaps.
