On display in the market square in Wittenberg, Germany, 800 miniature statues of Luther caused some complaints from German theologians who felt the art show was disrespectful to the 16th-century reformer.
Visitors to the show, part of Luther Decade and Reformation Decade celebrations, removed many of the mini-Luthers and placed them at other sites around town.
Theologian Friedrich Schorlemmer called the display "theological and aesthetic rubbish. ... Martin Luther cannot be mass produced."
