A Sculpture Featuring the Flag of Saudi Arabia Will Be Removed From Ground Zero.
A sculpture that features the flag of Saudi Arabia will be removed from Ground Zero in New York following outcry from 9/11 victim’s groups, the BBC reports.
The artwork, called Candy Nations, comprises a series of oversized sweets wrapped in flags of the G20 nations, including Argentina, France, South Korea and Saudi Arabia. French artist Laurence Jenkell said she created the work in 2011 “to celebrate mankind” and “pay tribute to People of the entire world.”
It has toured 25 countries around the world, and arrived at the former World Trade Center site last month. The exhibit intended to run until Feb. 28, according to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
