Critics are crying double standard over The New York Times‘ decision to run an image last week of the Virgin Mary smeared in elephant dung after refusing to print sketches of the Prophet Muhammad.
The newspaper printed Friday an image in its Art & Design section of “The Holy Virgin Mary,” a 1996 painting by the artist Chris Ofili, alongside an article about the owner’s decision to sell the work at a June 30 auction in London.
The painting, described in the article as an “eight-foot-high depiction of the Virgin Mary encrusted with a lump of elephant dung and collaged bottoms from pornographic magazines,” ignited a furor when it was first unveiled at the Brooklyn Museum in 1999.
