Lotte Shopping Center has "Erected" Spider-Man Sculpture.

South Korea is known for it's strange artistic taste displaying unusual paintings and sculptures in public places. For over a year a Spider-Man sculpture by an artist Eunsuk Yoo has been “erected”. This sculpture of Spider-Man sporting wood overlooks a children's play area. Lotte Shopping Center in Busan, South Korea has been displaying this sculpture for over a year.
Erected Spiderman.
Eunsuk Yoo was quoted as saying, "My reason for making this piece was to apply the natural and physical phenomenon to a Superhero and depict it natural in the morning without lies and being superficial in a comical way".

Spiderman Erection
Eunsuk Yoo goes on to say, "There have been some comments on various community sites and Facebook pages that this is lewd and a disgrace to the source material. Lotte Shopping Center has received many complaints this morning from a certain organization and after their meeting it was decided I have to modify the statue. Instead of modifying it I think I am going to take it down."
What do you think of this sculpture? Is it too much or is it art? Let me know in the comments below.
