Spain: Sculpture made with human bones sparks controversy in Las Palmas

January 17, 2018 at 02:01 (GMT) · Published

A sculpture made entirely out of human bones has sparked controversy in the Atlantic Museum of Modern Art (CAAM) located in the capital of Gran Canary Island Las Palmas, footage from Tuesday reveals.

The artwork "Threshold 2017" is shaped as a tumulus and is made out of human bones by the artist Teresa Correa. According to the museum, the bones have an aboriginal origin, allegedly belonging to old Canarians.

"It's a work that talks about the threshold between life and death" explained the director of CAAM museum Orlando Brito, adding that "It is a replica of a tumulus that was already made with the same form in the Canaria Museum about 10 years ago by anthropologists."

The artwork displayed in the San Antonio room of the museum has sparked controversial opinions on the correctness of such work.
