This SCULPTURE Was JUST TOO SEXY For The LOUVRE!!!

Meet the DOMESTIKATOR, a huge sculpture from the DUTCH ART And DESIGN Collaborative ATELIER Van LIESHOUT!!!

The good folks at the legendary LOUVRE MUSEUM in PARIS, FRANCE recently cancelled the debut of the exhibit featuring the DOMESTIKATOR on the day before its eagerly-anticipated opening.

PLAYBOY Magazine reports the reason was that the work was too sexually explicit, because; what you are in fact viewing is a massive sculpture of Two Buildings Having Sex.
The piece was to sit in the Louvre’s Tuileries Gardens as part of a public art program beginning October 19.

LOUVRE Director JEAN-LUC MARTINEZ said;
“it risks being misunderstood by visitors to the gardens.” 
Additionally; the 40-foot-high sculpture sits mighty close to a playground, which could get dicey.
Predictably, the provocateurs behind the sculpture are pissed. 
ATELIER Van LIESHOUT Founder JOEP Van LIESHOUT said;
“The piece itself, it’s not really very explicit. It’s a very abstracted shape. There are no genitals; it’s pretty innocent.” 
“Domestikator” has been on display at the Ruhrtriennale in Bochum, Germany for the last three years, where it’s symbolized “the power of humanity over the world and its hypocritical approach to nature,” according to a spokesperson for the Carpenters Workshop, the gallery that reps Atelier Van Lieshout.
