'China First Kiss' - controversy

A Chinese website inscribed a statue on its list of "10 Ugliest Sculptures ", which aroused a discussion whether the sculpture, named "China First Kiss", is ugly or a beautiful work of art. The Ya'an Museum in Sichuan had told the public that "China First Kiss" was inspired by the high relief on the walls of an ancient stone coffin dating back to the Eastern Han dynasty. "The romance lasting thousands of years should not be negated rashly".

The head of the Academy of Social Sciences, said that the important thing for a work of art should be its cultural content rather than the form of expression.
