Artist's Spider Man With Boner Sculpture Causes A Stir In South Korea

These are a bunch of shots of the Spider Man sculpture created by artist Eunsuk Yoo that was on display at the Lotte Shopping Center in South Korea. Spider Man has a big boner. Some people didn't like that, and, after a year on display, the sculpture has been removed. Per the tortured artist himself:

I am the artist who made this piece. My reason for it was that I wanted apply the natural physical phenomenon to a superhero depict whats's natural in the morning without lies and superficial-ness in a comical way.


Lotte Shopping Center has received many complaint calls this morning from a certain organization, and after their meeting, it was decided that I have to either modify or take the statue down. Instead of modifying my work, I've decided to take it down.

It was ok for about a year and now it has to be taken down due a sudden interest in the piece, which is sad. But I understand that a piece that could be potentially interpreted as lewd can be offensive at a place like shopping mall. It's disappointing, but I'll reach out to the public with a better work next time.

See, I like the artist's idea of showing a superhero's humanity. Like, sure, you can shoot webs, but you're still a human and humans get boners. At least humans under 70. They're perfectly natural, and nothing to be ashamed of. Unless you're talking to the girl you like at the pool, in which case you better cover that shit up with a kickboard because she and her friends will point and laugh. "BOI-YOI-YOING, here comes boner boy!" is all you'll hear at school next year.

Keep going for several more shots but WARNING: raging boner pics.

Thanks to Mark L., who wants to know what organization it was that complained so much. Because they're probably the real deviants here.
