Prudes in Houston don’t like new naked statue

Just “steps away” from a splash park, too, according to the video accompanying the short news item.

Nine bronze sculptures on display at Discovery Green in downtown Houston, Texas are drawing fire.

The works of art show a man in disguise. Sometimes he’s wearing wings and a beak, but he isn’t always wearing clothes.

One statue near the corner of McKinney and Crawford Streets is drawing the most criticism, showing a fully nude man with anatomically correct body parts.

“No, I don’t think it’s art,” says Henry Lopez, “It belongs in a strip club somewhere.”

It could also be very educational and artistic and a showpiece for the talents required to work with bronze. Why do people continue to get so weirded out by nakedness in this culture?
