Mating elk sculpture unveiled

INDIANAPOLIS, May 25 (UPI) -- A sculpture of two elk mating is eliciting criticism about the mode of intercourse shown outside the recently remodeled Herron School of Art in Indianapolis.

That's because the elk are depicted in a sexual position more suited for humans than animals, WISH-TV, Indianapolis, reports. The sculpture -- called "Trophy" -- was designed by contemporary artist Wim Delvoye of Belgium.

"I've been to Montana, Wyoming, Idaho and I've actually hunted their elk," Jimmy Kincaid told the TV station. "If I see two elk doing that, I'm running, that's all I can say. 'Cause it's not right."

Art student Lindsey Martin said it's a big deal about nothing.

"It's taking nature and putting it into a human element. It's an every day thing," she said. "It's nothing as bad as everybody thinks."
