'Disgusting' sculpture stays on show in Milan

The sculpture - officially titled L.O.V.E. but popularly known as The Middle Finger - will now remain in the Piazza d'Affari outside the Milan stock exchange until the end of a retrospective of Cattelan's work.

[...] given its position here just a stone's throw from the stock exchange - has invited discussion of a possible anti-capitalist message, though the artist himself has denied any such intention.

Maurizio Cattelan doesn't come cheap: his best-known work, featuring the late Pope John Paul II felled by a meteorite, fetched a cool $3m the last time it came under the auctioneer's hammer.
