Provocative sculpture rejected by Louvre finds new home

Dutch artist Joep van Lieshout poses for photographs in front of his sculpture “Domestikator”, displayed in the plaza outside the Centre Pompidou modern art museum in Paris, Tuesday, Oct. 17, 2017. The Centre Pompidou modern art museum in Paris has unveiled a provocative sculpture meant to represent the domestication of the earth by humanity. The huge sculpture, made of cubical metal containers, suggests two human figures having sexual intercourse, and the Louvre Museum ruled it too obscene to display in the nearby Tuileries Gardens as part of the FIAC contemporary art exhibition.(AP Photo/Thibault Camus)
