A lewd statue of the devil that seemingly popped up overnight in East Vancouver has been taken down by city officials after raising eyebrows -- among other things.
The statue stood about eight to nine feet tall on a pedestal near the intersection of 4th Avenue and Clark Drive for several hours Tuesday.
It was removed by city crews at around 3:15 p.m.
The statue also appeared to sport a full erection, a detail that likely raised hell with some of the commuters who use the station.
According to the City of Vancouver's public art registry, the small square was originally home to a statue of Christopher Columbus, but that has since been moved to Hastings Park.
@MetroVancouver Have you heard anything about the big Satan-like statue at Clark Drive around E5th??— ♥ SadGalMimi (@pr1nc3ssfl0wer) September 9, 2014
