10 Most Controversial Sculptures
But The Sun's royal photographer Arthur Edwards said: “This is quite obviously the work of a lunatic. I don't see this as anything more than a cheap stunt.”
The exhibit in Milan, Italy, drew harsh protest from the Catholic Anti-Defamation League and others who found the sculpture of the Pope in drag to be unacceptable. In an official statement, the Catholic Anti-Defamation League declared that the controversial sculpture is a "vulgar offence against Christ's vicar and the feelings of Roman Catholics." However, others have stated the censorship of the sculpture is another example of "Organized religion dictating the role of art" and that "This type of censorship should not be happening in 2007!"
3Two Peeing Guys
The idea is disarmingly simple. Two bronze sculptures pee into their oddly-shaped enclosure.
While they are peeing, the two figures move realistically. An electric mechanism driven by a couple of microprocessors swivels the upper part of the body, while the penis goes up and down. The stream of water writes quotes from famous Prague residents.
Visitors can interrupt them by sending SMS message from mobile phone to a number, displayed next to the sculptures. The living statue then “writes” the text of the message, before carrying on as before.

The artist said this about the pose. "The image from behind of the kneeling pose is very strong so I felt the front of the sculpture needed an equally powerful image which is where the bearskin comes in."
"The gallery said it received about 3,000 e-mails from around the world in just a week, split between anti-abortion and abortion rights opinions."
"We also got calls from Tokyo, England, France. Some people are upset that Britney is being used for this subject matter," said gallery co-owner David Kesting." Others who are pro-life thought this was degrading to their movement. And some pro-choice people were upset that this is a pro-life monument." ABC News.
