    Wouldn't bother me in the least, why would it? I think my parents' only objection would be having to constantly answer the door. In fact I imagine they would probably put it outside the front door to save their hall carpet.

    After all this unnecessary furore and cost to the taxpayer, I sincerely hope the politically-correct jobsworth who started all this loses their job.
    Not sure about losing their job but an extremely severe reprimand at the very least.

    It was a farce in 2001 and this time it shows gross negligence on the part of the gallery. How can any artist trust this organisation.

    After all this publicity the gallery can now go after the big fish like T. Kincaid and Wyland.

    They say there's no such thing as bad publicity, but I can't see how this debacle can be anything other than bad news for the gallery. Why would any contemporary artist or collector want to entrust this place with their work?

    And have their works confiscated for crimes against the public taste!

    The ITN teletext news service describes the work as having been "seized by the police as part of a child pornography probe". I think this is probably the exception to the rule that "there's no such thing as bad publicity", since the implication is "Sleazy pervs get away with it this time"!

    The CPS(Crown Prosecution Service) has now decided that it will not proceed with the case.

    I'm pretty sure the gallery employee who dialled 999 should probably consider whether the arts field is really where they should be working, do they really have the judgement and values to be a positive asset to an arts institution?

    Somehow I have a hard time conjuring up an image of a block-long lineup of people outside of Andy's parent's house waiting to catch a look at little Andy's peepee.
    If I had been present at the creation, I would have given some useful hints for the better arrangement of the Universe.
