In certain African cultures Elephant dung is a religious icon. It is considered sacred.
I saw the art work and I did not find it offensive at all. The dung is not spattered on the image of the Virgin Mary. Rather it is used as a medium for the art.I don't really understand what the big deal is. Censorship is un-American. My taxes should support the arts. All of them. Thank god I live in a city where there is so much art.
