It's a cover-up in Cranbrook as modesty prevails

The quirky sculpture on display, but with an extra prop for those of a sensitive nature

An art gallery owner in Cranbrook has had to cover up one of her centrepiece sculptures in case she offends the public. Marie Prett put this giant metal ape on display in the window of the Singing Soul Gallery.

But a member of the public contacted the police, saying that some of the detail of the artwork was unsuitable for public viewing. Officers visited to check the offending piece, but decided it WAS fit for public consumption.

The owner, has nonetheless, placed another sculpture in front of the ape, just in case.
