The Satan Statue in Vancouver

Petition asks City of Vancouver to re-erect naked Satan statue | Globalnews.ca

I understand it that likely this is a tongue in cheek provocation of the status quo. That is exactly why I like it.

Some, so far anonymous artist really did take time and effort to make the physical presence of his artistic expression. He or she now is surely reveling in the recourse.

I don't consider myself an artist but this particular piece awakens in me perhaps some latent ....

Anyway, they tore it down. It reminded me of the Saddam Hussein moment.

Why did they tear it down? Are men's genitalia offensive? Because it's red? Because he's making the peace symbol with his hands? Because he's representing Satan? Is that a bad or real thing?
