Family values

Sculpture at US shopping plaza turns heads

DELRAY BEACH, Florida (AP) — Parents in Florida are complaining about a sculpture of a nude family outside a shopping center west of Delray Beach.

Parents of children who attend a nearby elementary school say the bronze statue is inappropriate, and the Parent-Teacher Association president e-mailed parents Wednesday asking them to complain.

The sculpture is by artist Itzik Asher and titled "Journey to the New." It is supposed to represent the journey of Russian and Ethiopian Jews from their homes to Israel. It was previously displayed at other locations in the area.


I would be complaining too. These statues are not anatomically correct.
And could someone please put a fig leave on Micheangelo's David and the Venus de Milo?
