Sculpture of Michael Jackson Dangling Son 'Blanket' From Window Angers Fans

A newly-installed sculpture (no, not that one) entitled Madonna and Child, depicting Michael Jackson dangling his son "Blanket" from a hotel window, has fans upset. So much so, the stans are sending the artist and studio hate mail. The sculpture, created by Swedish-born artist Maria von Köhler, can be seen coming out of a window of The Premises music Studios in Hoxton, east London. The studio's chief executive, Viv Broughton, said the artwork will not be taken down. "How can a work of art that is faithful to a real event be construed as an attack on anyone?" he adds. "Madonna and Child is as much about extreme fan worship as it is about Michael Jackson."
