But is it art?

I'm laughing at an article in Metro UK.

It's a lovely day in Qingyuan, in China's Guangdong province. The birds are singing in the trees; in the distance, the Bei river flows gently on; and along the streets echoes the unmistakable sound of an ox pulling a cart with two gigantic fake breasts on it.

The vast, ball-shaped breasts were made by Chinese artist Shu Yong, and shown during a local arts show in Qingyuan.

The sculpture was previously featured in an exhibit in Beijing that aimed to increase appreciation for natural curves in a country where plastic surgery is booming.

I can't publish the picture provided with the article, because I know many of you read this blog at work, and the picture is definitely not work-safe! However, to have a good laugh, once you're in a safe viewing environment, I highly recommend clicking on the link and enjoying the photograph. It's priceless!
