Bemidji´s sculpture walk in Minnesota has been host to a number
of beautiful sculptures, and yet the city manager has deemed it
appropriate to remove a beaver statue because some thought it was too
suggestive.
The statue, which was painted with a scene, was found to be
offensive when some people looked at it at the belly. Some saw female
genitalia and some saw mother earth depicted.
City Manager John Chattin ordered the statue removed to appease
the few and received a public outcry from those that liked the beaver,
which was part of a series of nine statues. The scene was meant to be a
woman´s praying hands, the artist said.
