Yesterday, artist Paul McCarthy erected a statue of questionable form. The 79 foot-tall Tree, installed for FIAC’s “Hors Les Murs” program at Place Vendôme in Paris, has been said to resemble a Brancusi sculpture or a sex toy. The artist and the Vendôme maintain that it's an abstraction, meant to be ambiguous.
