Police Ban Leda!

Metropolitan Police officers keep popping up in the news, accused of racism, bribery, incompetence or snuggling up to the Murdoch Mafia. Now they've become art critics! A bobby on a bus spotted Derrick Santini's A Fool for Love (2012) in the window of the Scream gallery in Bruton Street, Mayfair, and alerted his colleagues in Harrow. Two uniformed Met. plod turned up at the gallery and demanded that Santini's picture be removed from the window, because it condoned bestiality, an arrestable offence. They were clueless about the Greek myth Leda and the Swan, which has been depicted by many famous artists including Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci. As Santini's show Metamorphosis had just finished (CLICK) the management were happy to remove the picture. It had been in the window for a month without a single complaint from the public (CLICK). My only question is: Are those silicone implants under the stuffed swan?
