What do you believe to be obscene or offensive in artwork?
Depends on the observer and how they perceive the piece. I've seen art by the great renaissance artists and how back then, the people observed the art as obscene (hence the majority of classical art/sculptors with leafs covering their privates). Yet I've seen contemporary art where the subject is smothered with feces and wearing an American flag. So it's a toss up... And if I can stomach crap (literally).
-The penis in the cover of The Little Mermaid.
-The word "Sex" written in the girl's hair in Tangled and also in the dust cloud in The Lion King.
-The 666 hidden in the logo for "Walt Disney".
-And the little Hitler in the mural in the castle at Disney Land.
So basically, Disney. But I laugh at all of that so I really wouldn't see that as offensive. I think it’s great for older audiences and it’s so much fun to try and find them! Lol
Now, watch this comment get flagged or something. lol
That is a hard question to answer since some art is supposed to be offensive, but in my opinion I find artwork that is made solely to be offensive/obscene with no other real or deeper meaning to be inappropriate.

Original art? Photography? Framed posters? Fabric? Taxidermy? There are so many choices out there, it's fun to hear how others are decorating their walls!
