Police union spokesman Hagen Hisgen said: “There is freedom of art – but this time it has gone too far.”
And local interior minister Markus Ulbig added “It is offensive towards policewomen and in my opinion is against human dignity.”
But a spokesperson for the art school said: “Narcel doesn’t understand why people are attacking what is simply a work of art.”Source: web.orange.co.uk
