The Blackfriars Priory School in Adelaide Australia unveiled a new statue last year of St. Dominic giving a young boy a loaf of bread in a questionable pose.
The design has a boy kneeling at the foot of the 12th century Spanish-born saint who is giving him a phallic-shaped loaf of bread, crotch-level. Apparently, the principal at the all boys Catholic school was forced to cover up the statue of the saint and said the oversight was due to only seeing the design in two-dimensions.
The statue was covered with a black cloth after students took photos posted them on social media, the Adelaide Advertiser reports.
Some have wondered about the design process…
“Was there seriously no one that looked at this before it was installed?”
But another woman suggested it was an innocent statue,
“He’s just giving the boy some bread.”
I don’t know about you, but I have eyes that work in both 2 and 3 dimensions…
