Santa with Butt Plug

 Rotterdam, cast bronze, 2008

Also known as Santa with Inflatable Xmas Tree and as the Butt Plug Gnome, a related inflatable sculpture,Tree, that was displayed in Paris’s Place Vendôme caused the artist to be slapped very forcefully in the face and the piece itself to be vandalized and removed well before it was due.  The chocolate version was of course fabricated with the finest Belgian chocolate.
