Made in China: "Confrontational" Statue of ML King Rejected for DC


www.washingtonpost.com

A powerful federal arts commission is urging that the sculpture of Martin Luther King Jr. proposed for a memorial on the Tidal Basin be reworked because it is too "confrontational" and reminiscent of political art in totalitarian states.

The U.S. Commission of Fine Arts thinks "the colossal scale and Social Realist style of the proposed statue recalls a genre of political sculpture that has recently been pulled down in other countries."

Last year, critics complained after a Chinese sculptor known for his monumental works of figures such as Mao Zedong was selected to create King and other elements of the memorial in China.

This story seems like a bad NWO joke.

The sculpture of ML King, "the Stone of Hope," is being produced in China by a sculptor famed for depictions of Mao.

Surprise, the US Commission of Fine Arts now finds its "Social Realist style" is better suited for a depiction of a "totalitarian" leader...

If things don't pan out for the sculptor, perhaps he could get a commission to do the Decider instead.
