    It's anti-Mermaidism pure and simple.

    This masterpiece was not permanently damaged, but others have been:

    Vatican marks anniversary of 1972 attack on Michelangelo's Pieta | Reuters

    European public art is among the most revered and publically important in the world. What is the impact on that nation's citizens when a person who objects to some policy (or to war-making, or to public nudity, etc.) destroys or damages that art?

    Your thoughts?
    meh.. I'm not impressed. Who ever did it should've taken the time to paint it as The Little Mermaid™





    This is the proper way to vandalize statues..

    No, but 50 ft high statutes of Stalin are not ancient masterpieces.

    I take your point, though. Trying to sanitize the past never ends well.

    I could appreciate that. At least in my days as a young mom, movies were viewed only at theaters.

    Watching that movie 1,001xs in row might anger me, too.

    To destroy art is to lose the argument.

    Would it be as funny, if some "Banksy" did that to an American war monument?
