Prudish cops ask gallery to remove art of Greek myth4/29/2012
A gallery in central London has been forced to remove a photo from its window depicting the Greek myth of "Leda and the Swan" because of concerns that it condoned bestiality. A police officer spotted the photo, shown above, and responding officers, who apparently were unfamiliar with the myth -- in which Zeus takes the form of a swan to seduce Leda -- would not leave until it was taken down. The gallery says it received no complaints about the art, nor, it seems, were there reports of spontaneous bestiality or other Greek myth reenactments by passersby.
Is the photo offensive?
