    From the article...The team even made it into a local museum. That would be the Icelandic Phallological Museum, which was moved several years ago to immortalize the victorious handball players in an unusually raunchy sculpture called The Icelandic National Handball Team. The sculpture consists, basically, of a bunch of silver penises pointing at the ceiling in a kind of wild-mushrooms-waving-in-a-field effect
    .

    Sculptures throughout history have shown penises with no problem.

    The current puritanical society we live in sucks.

    The story is only slightly more interesting than the sport itself.

    Since this is a sculpture in the Icelandic Penis museum, I don't think anyone objects to the object itself, but rather that it was commissioned by the museum owner, created by his daughter, and tricks people into thinking it depicts the genitalia of a group of men who have no affiliation with the museum whatsoever, and who are kind of skeeved out by the idea that someone is passing her sculpture off as casts of their penises.

    But it's sure that a sculpture like that would cause some waves in the US. And that stinks.

    More like some of these - rounded shapes rising from the ground. The Casino here in CT has a "river" crafted off hundreds of small projections.

    Looks like Liberace's candelabra. Or: Best. Menorahs. Ever.
