Tate Health Lapse

What A Ripoff! (CLICK) was my verdict on Ai Weiwei's handpainted porcelain sunflower seeds on 12 October 2010, closely followed by Another Tate Fiasco! (CLICK) on 15 October when punters were banned from walking on them due to an unacceptable level of dust. BBC Arts Editor Will Gompertz now reveals that paint used on the sunflower seeds contains 35% lead (title link)! So much for 'elf 'n' safety at Tate Passé! Let the punter beware indeed.
