Lynch Too Gruesome for NYC

08 August 2000

It seems David Lynch is too gruesome even for New York. The fiberglass cow sculpture created by the director for a public art show is being returned to California without going on display, The New York Times reported Thursday. Lynch, known for the eerie 1990s television drama ``Twin Peaks,'' chopped off his cow's head and stuck forks and knives into its back. He also covered parts of the cow with a reddish, blood-like substance. CowParade NYC 2000 features several hundred fiberglass cows decorated by artists and schoolchildren and displayed on sidewalks around the city. Lynch said he was disappointed to be excluded. ``Don't you think when people tell you you're allowed to do whatever you want as long as it's not sexually X-rated that they should stand behind their word and show your cow?'' Lynch said.
