Imelda Marcos Puts Her Foot Down Over Controversial Dildo Jesus Art Show in the Philippines, Shuttering It

If there's one thing guaranteed to raise hackles, its the kind of work by Mideo Cruz featured in the exhibition "Kulo," which opened June 17 at Manila's Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP): The pieces in question feature images of Jesus with large dildos fixed to their collaged surfaces, extending visibly outwards. In one offending work, Jesus's face is covered with a wooden ashtray topped by a semi-erect penis encircled by a dangling cross bracelet. In another, a large cross sculpture is adorned with a bright red dildo.
