A large replica of a controversial sculpture by an equally controversial sculptor was included in the opening ceremony of the Paralympic Games. The sculptor in question is Marc Quinn and the statue in question is entitled Alison Lapper Pregnant. She is disabled and, when she posed for this strange man, she was eight months pregnant, unmarried, and stark naked! The statue was unveiled in 2005 and was on display in Trafalgar Square until late 2007.
Marc Quinn is a most disturbing ,frightening and surely abnormal, individual. In 1991, he unveiled another controversial and extremely disturbing sculpture. On that occasion, his “work” was a refrigerated cast of his own head made with nine pints of his own blood! He called his monstrousity “Self”! He obviously loves to shock and court controversy.
When people cease to believe that God exists, and then embrace evolution, everything becomes relative and there are no absolutes and no-one to answer to, so society descends further and further into obscenity and madness. The emphasis on the Big Bang theory (but always presented as fact) at the opening ceremony, set the scene for what was to follow, and only a few would have been shocked at the replica of Alison Lapper Pregnant, which is indecent and terribly wrong, and it would have been just as wrong if an able-bodied, naked ,pregnant, unmarried woman had been the subject/victim!
