Leda and the Face/Palm (NSFW)

The London Metropolitan Police admitted there had been no complaints, but none the less they took a dim view of Derrick Santini’s modern rendering of Zeus ravishing Leda, the myth of the conception of Helen of Troy.

An officer took exception as he passed the Scream gallery in Bruton Street on a bus. He alerted colleagues and two uniformed officers from Harrow arrived to demand the work be removed.

Jag Mehta, sales director at the gallery owned by Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood’s sons Tyrone and Jamie, said: “We asked them what the problem was and they said it suggested we condoned bestiality, which they said was an arrestable offense.”

As it happened, the exhibition had ended and the item in question was about to be packed for storage when the police arrived. The constables were all totally unaware of the myth depicted in the artwork, which is a sad commentary on the priorities of modern education.
