Milan, March 29 - Three life-sized lamb puppets
hung from a tree in Milan's XXIV Maggio square on Friday are a
"reminder of the 800,000 baby sheep slaughtered every year for
Italian tables at Easter," animal rights group Nemesi Animale
said.
In 2004 contemporary artist Maurizio Cattelan caused an
uproar when he hung lifelike wax-and-resin effigies of three
small boys from the same tree as part of an impromptu art forum
held on the sidewalks around the square.
"Years ago the hung children evoked outrage...we want this
symbolic action to make people reflect on what a lamb hung in a
slaughterhouse looks like and goes through," the association
said.
"Each one of us can make an important choice to not eat
animals, just as six million Italians already have," Nemesi
said.
