Cast with good intentions but perhaps a poor eye for accuracy, terrible statues have been something of a trend lately. Now the residents of a Serbian town are ruffled over an owl effigy, which some say resembles a penis.
The hefty terracotta statue was meant to honor the large winter owl population of Kikinda, Serbia. Instead, the owl sculpture has garnered bizarre criticism for apparently looking too much like the male sex organ.
The 2.8-meter monument was created by local artist Jovan Blato. Unveiled this month, the new landmark has generated some bad reviews online and among Kikinda residents, who are angry at the perceived lack of invention with the statue.
