"the rest of the pile" Tiga Mojang

This is "the rest of the pile" sculpture of Indonesian famous sculpture artist, Nyoman Nuarta, which named Tiga (tiga (Indonesia) = three (English) ; Mojang (Sundanese word for GIRL). Tiga Mojang was build at one of real estate in Bekasi, Jawa Barat (West Java), Indonesia https://www.google.co.id/search?q=patung+tiga+mojang&bi… But protested by local organization who thought that the sculpture is too vulgar/porn and also not suitable with local culture, because they think Bekasi which part of West Java, the province which dominated by Sundanese, is not belong to Sundanese tradition but more close with Betawinese culture. So they broke the sculpture and there's nothing policeman can do. Nyoman Nuarta, Balinese who also made some famous sculpture such as Garuda Wisnu Kencana in his hometown in Bali, removed his rest of the pile Tiga Mojang sculpture to his almamater, ITB (Institut Teknologi Bandung or Bandung Institute of Technology) when they held Pasar Seni (Art Market) 10.10.10 or October 10th, 2010. My personal opinion, this is his genius protest to so called "defender of the universe gank" who use violence, without using violence back.

    The struggle of art against the established traditions was never easy. In medieval Europe they had the heretics burned alive by the Church....
