On the plaza right next to the Henan Province Radio & Television Tower, a landmark square in Zhengzhou, stands a new sculpture that has been making many a visitor blush.
The sculpture features a female pig lying on the ground — with her left breast exposed — while a male pig stands behind it. To everyone with a gutter mind (that includes just about everyone), the pigs look as if they are doing it… doggie-style.
Some locals have taken to nicknaming the sculpture “hooligan pigs” while others have wondered aloud if such a “vulgar” statue should be placed so prominently on a public square.
The urban management authority, when contacted by journalists, said the sculpture is part of a series of 21 cartoon stone sculptures designed to inculcate values — such as perseverance, diligence and love — in young children.
This sculpture, the spokesman reveals, depicts a young pig giving his mother a back massage, and was meant to show the importance of filial piety.
