Carved relief of naked German political leaders grabbing each other’s genitals

“…curious Germans have flocked [in Bodman-Ludwigshafen, in the far south of Germany] for over a week to see a new work by the sculptor Peter Lenk, [a] carved relief of naked German political leaders [former German Finance Minister Hans Eichel, former Chancellor Gerhard Schröder, current Chancellor Angela Merkel, former governor of Bavaria Edmund Stoiber and current leader of the Free Democrats, Guido Westerwelle] … naked and laughing and grabbing each other’s genitals. A banner over their heads reads, in English, “Global Players.”"
