Bad taste

An Egyptian artist has been forced to change a sculpture honoring fallen soldiers after it was criticized as apparently depicting sexual harassment. Mother of the Martyr features a slender peasant woman, a common representation of Egypt, being held by a helmeted soldier. But residents in the city of the Sohag claim it is inappropriate. The concrete statue, located close to a girls' school in the city, has yet to be formally unveiled. Along with criticism of an apparent unwanted advance on a woman, others suggest the 8.5-metre-tall artwork depicts Egypt's military seducing the country.
