Neighbors Upset Over Topless Statue in Yard
(Memphis) – The yard art that Victor Sanders put up last week at his East Memphis home is anything but subtle.
If you drive by his home 4322 Valley Glynn Drive you’ll find three female statues in his front yard.
“I like the way they look,” Sanders said.” It’s something different and I like the way they look.”
Some of his neighbors don’t mind them.
“It’s his yard, his money and he paid for them,” Donna Johnson said.
But most neighbors think the new look is obscene.
“The two that are dressed I have no problem with them it’s just the one that’s out front with the personal parts hanging out you know that just what caught my eye,” neighbor Charles Davenport said.
Parents like Michael Ulua are upset because children are getting an eyeful on their walk to school.
Plus, the bus stop is right across the street.
“Their breasts are all out and you have an elementary school down the street and you have all these little kids walking by looking at it. It’s kind of weird to have that in a neighborhood,” he said.
Ulua said it’s not what he and his family want to wake up to, so he wants the statue covered up or moved.
“It is kinda weird in front of my house to wake up and see all these naked statues.”
Sanders wasn’t aware of his neighbors concerns, but now that he is he told News Channel 3 he he’ll move his sexy statue.
“If it’s that big of a problem I can do that,” he said.
Sanders does not have to move his statue. The city said it is not violating any ordinances.
