Sculpture or Rubbish?

Sculpture or Rubbish? A contemporary sculpture by sculptor Graham Hudson, depicting Saddam Hussein's wife is causing confusion in Holland Park, London. Passers-by have mistaken the sculpture of an oil drum, cable wheels, cardboard boxes, paint and adhesive tape for rubbish.

A visitor said: "It looks like someone has tried to wrap up a package very poorly and stuck it in the middle of the garden. It's not my idea of art."

But sculptor Hudson thinks that it is a beautiful spot named after the most successful fascist dictator in history. The sculpture depicts Sajida Talfah, the first wife of Saddam Hussein. In 2006 she was placed on Iraq's most wanted list and has not been seen since. Link
