Deformed Marilyn Monroe sculpture unveiled at the Cairo Opera
Marilyn? Marilyn, is that you? In an apparent attempt to portray Marilyn Monroe in her famous billowing white dress, an Egyptian sculptor caused a stir on social media for creating a rather terrifying statue that was unveiled at the Cairo Opera House a few days ago, Youm7 reports. (What Ms. Monroe has to do with Egypt, God alone knows.) This piece of “art” is joining the ranks of other hideous statues our country’s finest sculptors have gifted us, including the Frankenstein-esque Nefertiti bust in Minya and the "Mother of the Martyr” statue that looked a whole lot like an incident of [redacted] harassment. We’re not sure who’s more likely to be rolling in their grave: Poor Ms. Monroe, or our Ancient Egyptian forefathers who don’t know how we went from building awe-inspiring colossi to … whatever this atrocity is.
