She also appears to be the MP for Llareggub, which is not a place in Wales but is rather "Bugger All" written backwards. You have been trolled to tears, I'm afraid.

I've just tried to find the origins of this statue, since I assume it really exists somewhere. It does not, I don't think. The only link I found was for rudgwicksteamshow.co.uk, with no source and just the same information as this tweet. Any searches for various descriptions of the statue have been unsuccessful. My conclusion: it's not even a real bloody statue.

Here's the original picture if anyone else would like to do their own reverse image search.

Yandex had it. It's a Dutch statue called "And Life is Over There", by Femmy Otten.

So what does it mean for you that the statue is real, just not in Oxford? Was it being in Oxford the clinching factor in whether or not it's controversial?

Here's a clue, not that the name of the statue isn't "woman of our times".

>Her new sculpture has references to nudes from classic Greek sculpture and is both male and female. For Otten this is the most ideal state of being: "The Greek god Hermaphroditus was literally merged with his beloved. Ever since I started drawing and making my work genders have effortlessly merged into each other. For me this feels very natural. I can identify with the one or with the other. To me it feels strange to view men and women as separate entities - we are so deeply involved with each other and our lives are so intertwined. I myself feel a deep urge to blend."
>The nakedness and sexual ambiguity of And Life Is Over There also addresses issues like daring to be different and being allowed to be different. In this way the artist wants to generate a freedom of thought. She is not literally talking about the evangelist christian korean youtuber, but more about the idea that everything should be allowed, also when it is different from the norm. That nudity is very natural and can be very disarming, that different genders and cultures can be united, that there is also a great tenderness in this completeness. Otten: "In this sculpture I was very much concerned with finding the right posture, it had to be perfectly natural. No shame and no explicit pride - to me that was very important."

Sounds straightforward enough to me. The sculpture's got her little chap out, but so do satues of jacked Greek lads and little Victorian piss babies up and down the country, across Europe even.

Nobody has mentioned yet that the statue also has three arms. Perhaps that was the real message all along.

Despite posting myself, I'm not actually involved in this discussion and was merely trying to effect more shit-hurling by pointing out the existence of the statue to the person who was saying OP was trolled to tears.

Have fun figuring out that third arm.

If the statue was as good bait in its original context, the troll account wouldn't have had to recontextualise it. QED.The third arm is because the person is merged with another.
