A piece of yard art is drumming up controversy in an Abilene neighborhood.
A family has displayed the statue of David in their garden. If you didn't know, the statue of David is of a naked man, and though the owners say this is just art some residents are finding it offensive.
Roxanna Nunez, who lives down the street, says her children have started asking questions, "Mom what is that, uh...what can you tell a child if you haven't talked about sex yet."
Alina Hatcher agrees, "You have a lot of mothers and parents in this neighborhood who are outraged by it."
The homeowner didn't go on camera Tuesday, but did talk to KTXS saying they are not trying to offend anyone.
They say it's a statue they fell in love with, that it's just art, and its just body parts. At this time they don't plan to take it down.
Neighbors say they understand it's art, but does it have to be this anatomically correct? "To have this type of expression of yourself to put out it's a little daunting," said Hatcher.
"Some art needs to be left in the dog gone museum," echoed Nunez.
We showed Abilene Police a picture of "David", they say it is not against the laws to display art like that. However, they encourage the owners to cover him in order to "keep the peace" among the neighborhood.
