The Scream art a gallery in Mayfair had exhibited the artwork for a month with no complaints from the public. The work is intended as modern depiction of the Greek myth of Leda and the Swan.
But a Metropolitan police officer who saw the Derrick Santini image from a bus was alarmed.
He alerted his colleagues and two uniformed officers went to the gallery, which is owned by the Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood’s sons, Tyrone and Jamie.
Jag Mehta, the sales director at the gallery, said she spoke to the officers and asked what the problem was.
“They said the photograph suggested we condoned bestiality, which was an arrestable offence,” she said. “It’s crazy. Perhaps the cultural references were lost on them.”
Did it encourage the sodomising of swans? You can decide for yourself below. Some might get the urge to dick a duck but IMNSHO anyone who finds this sexy need to seek professional help.
Boggart Blog would describe these two prudish polds as as a pair of cupid stunts but we suppose the cultural reference in that would be lost on them too.
