  • Suggestive statue at SA school to change

The private Blackfriars Priory School commissioned the sculpture for its campus in the suburbs of Adelaide.

The school clearly hadn't thought the seemingly innocent statue through - and you'll soon see why.

The statue of St. Martin de Porres at Blackfriars Priory School in suburban Adelaide shows the bread being held at crotch-level as the smiling boy gazes up with a hand reaching for the loaf. And that's mainly due to the bread's placement.

You couldn't make this shit up.

Mr Cobiac said the design had been intended as a "depiction of the tireless work of St Martin de Porres, a Dominican brother, for the poor and downtrodden of the 16th Century". "The School apologises for any concerns and publicity generated by this matter and is taking action to substantially alter the statue".

The school has since covered the statue with a black cloth and plans to have it redesigned by a local artist. A picture of the statue was shared on a local Instagram channel that pokes fun at the city, where it quickly went viral. But some people immediately began to notice that the size and location of the bread sort of looked like something a little less charitable.

He added that when he saw it in 2D, it didn't look suggestive.

School executives only recognized its risqué nature after it arrived and chose to cover it with a black tarp until a local artist "substantially" alters it, Cobiac wrote.

When the statue was actually viewed by an executive, the school said it was deemed "to be potentially suggestive," wrote Principal Simon Cobiac in a statement on Facebook.
