'Where do I find these things?'
Can it be true? 
This 'World Famous' sculpture is named “What You see Might Not Be Real” by Chinese artist Chen Wenling. It makes a dig at the global financial crisis. The farting bull represents Wall Street (in Chinese slang, to fart means to bluff or lie). And the man being shoved into the wall is Bernard Madoff.

The Sculpture was big news (on most news shows, newspapers, internet articles and magazines) at the time in the UK and across Europe.
Almost everybody knows of it and has seen the image...

...although I did see/hear a couple of news articles at the time, that claimed as a footnote that the USA had restricted news reporting upon this sculpture because they perceived it to be against their national interest.

And it is claimed (and apparently not refuted) that the top nations who censor their 'national news releases' are #1: USA  #2: North Korea #3: Iran 

I've worked with USA colleagues visiting London who have been gobsmacked in the past at news 'events' reported in Europe that they'd never heard tell of in the USA.

For my own part, I've always noticed, when visiting the USA, how little I hear upon international news, whilst I'm there.

Re: Say the first word that comes to mind...

Seems to me that this sculpture might closer to the truth with Bernie Madoff farting on investors and ramming Wall Street up the butt. Of course, he did get what was coming to him; imprisonment and the suicide of a son. BTW- I came across this sculpture months ago in Art Forum, and as for being against the national interest and censored, that seems far fetched. Of course, the majority of Americans are readers of the National Inquirer, but even there this would be tasty fodder for tiny minds to further indict Wall Street. Thanks for posting this Dill,

Sorry Max, but I have to disagree.  Whatever you think Bernie Madoff deserved, how can you argue that his son deserved to be driven to suicide?

I sometimes favor draconian punishments, but I'm sensitive about saying that the people around the malefactors deserve to suffer with them, especially when it leads to suicide.

I, of course meant that Bernie paid the price in grief and sorrow. From context it is pretty clear what I meant. Unless you are a survivor of suicide (of a loved one) you'll never understand what I meant. Also, I would imagine that many hundreds of people who lost millions to Madoff are thrilled to death that a relative of Madoff offed himself and may wish all his sons follow suit.

Anyway... The first word that comes to mind is:
