People have been hailing Satan for years. There’s tons of music written about it, Anton LaVey founded a church around it, and there’s even a monument to Lucifer that might be erected alongside Oklahoma’s state capitol. However, that apparently doesn’t fly in Vancouver, BC, where a surprise art installation featuring Old Nick got nixed after just a few hours. See, the statue that was erected of Satan was really erected. Here’s how Global News described the statue, which was put up overnight in a small park beside a train line and busy roadway on a pedestal that originally had a statue of Christopher Columbus.
A rogue art installation in Vancouver had commuters doing a devilish double-take for a few hours today. It was erected – so to speak – sometime overnight – and as Jeremy Hunka reports, the now-removed statue had more than a few people “turning red.”
…The large red statue, complete with horns and a tail, is anatomically “complete.”
Oops. No one has claimed responsibility for the satan penis statue, which was up until city crews removed it at around 3pm on Tuesday (9), but if we were to guess if any band was responsible, we’d go with Goatwhore. Check out some pics after the jump.
