“Art is there to provoke the reaction and usually for the one negative comment there’s thousands of positive comments as well,”¬†says sculptor Gregor Kregar, whose $200,000 sculpture commissioned by Auckland Council¬† has been erected in Auckland, New Zealand.

“To be honest it’s a little bit upsetting but for me it’s almost more humorous or funny… If you look at the finished sculptures photographed in my workroom there is not a phallic form to be seen.

“Hopefully the opinion will change through time when the sculpture is installed and they’ll embrace the work.”

But not embrace it too tightly…
