Said the artist, Stig Ramsing, explaining the meaning of his sculpture of Christ as a dog with a huge penis. This offends people even in Sweden.
Another Swedish artist, Lars Vilks recently caused a stir with a cartoon depicting Muhammad with a dog's body. No word on the penis size of dog-Muhammad, but Ramsing says, "It is my turn to follow (artist) Lars Vilks and provoke a sensible discussion about religion."
I don't know too much about how Swedes experience about these things, but I think Ramsing saw how much action Vilks got on his artwork and decided to get some too. Minus the death threats.
