Adelaide's Newest Sculpture Has Been Vandalised Just Hours After Being Erected

Adelaide's Newest Sculpture Has Been Vandalised Just Hours After Being Erected

Adelaide recently unveiled a new sculpture that has certainly been divisive. With a $174,000 price tag, the giant pigeon statue on Rundle Mall has raised a few eyebrows for being expensive, however others have celebrated it.

But just hours after being officially revealed, people have wasted no time in taking the mick out of it.

One Instagram user has taken a video of a South Australian man suctioning a massive (and we mean humungous) dildo onto the underside of the sculpture. Poor pigeon.

It's not clear how long the adult sex toy was allowed to remain on the statue, however it sparked a massive reaction on social media.

Many pointed out that the boys could have been a bit more anatomically correct, with one person writing: "I don't know much about pigeon anatomy... but I'm pretty sure it's in the wrong spot."

Another added: "Placing it a bit lower might be 'f***ing brilliant'."

A third hit the nail on the head with the comment: "This is why we can't have nice things."

"This exciting piece of public art will build on the existing legacy of public art across the city and will add to Adelaide's reputation as a place of culture, creativity and innovation," she said.

"I actually think these things are meant to be playful, and they are meant to be challenging sometimes, and fun. I think it will be a piece of artwork that will attract a lot of opinions. I really look forward to people's reaction to it."
