Is A Urinating Statue Obscene? Video!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Some residents of a Swedish town said they are not amused by a 26-foot-tall sculpture of a male figure urinating into a river.


The `Bad Bad Boy` sculpture, by Finnish artist Tommi Toija, was installed as part of the Orebro Open Art exhibition on the bank of the River Svartan."


Most people equate art appreciation with getting all dressed up, paying an entrance fee, and looking at paintings in a stuffy museum.

But art should be free and accessible to everyone, and what better place to install a work of art than in a river?

Folks who complain that the sculpture by Tommi Toija is obscene don`t know jack about art, a sculpture of a male figure urinating is a common motif in art.

People please, don`t pi** on anyone`s parade, enjoy the free art!
