What the fxxk is this?! Obviously I know this is a woman’s breast, well, a huge breast. But why it occurs here? Shouldn’t this place exhibit something related with art? Is this a piece of art?

What is art? What is beauty? Why these concepts differ among different people? I guess this is because people have different values, and value is something very complex. What do you think?
