School Forced To Cover Up Accidentally “Suggestive” Statue Of Boy And Saint
A Catholic school has been forced to cover a recently-erected statue after it raised eyebrows.
The statue of Saint Martin de Porres, shown giving a loaf of bread to a young boy, was installed outside Blackfriars Priory School in Adelaide last week.
But unfortunately for school staff, the sculpture ended up looking provocative.
The unintentionally provocative design has sparked a wave of social media activity, forcing the school to take action to cover up the unfortunate statue.
According to News.AU.come, Principal Simon Cobiac released a statement on Facebook saying the sculpture was designed in Vietnam by the same sculptor used to create another statue in the school.
