Fuckfinger Monument

Maurizio Cattelan hat einen ausgestreckten Mittelfinger vor der Börse in Mailand aufgestellt. Ein giant Fuckfinger Monument für die Ewigkeit. Hell fucking yeah!

the most recent and much discussed artwork by maurizio cattelan arrived today in milan's piazza affari, in front of the italian stock exchange building. the controversial monument is made in marble, about 4 meters high and has been allocated on a base that brings the sculpture to a total height of 11 meters. during the making process, the famed italian artist changed the title from 'omnia munda mundis' - literally meaning 'to the pure [men], all things [are] pure', a latin sentence that has entered a relatively common usage in many countries - to 'L.O.V. E.'

'officially it's name is L.O.V. E. - so it stands for love - but everyone can read between the lines and take away the message they see for themselves.'
