City hall: Public art Spider-Man hands confused for devil horns, called anti-Christian

The sculpture of red-and-black hands shooting a spiderweb near the Lincoln Children’s Zoo offended a Lincoln woman so much she wrote to Mayor Leirion Gaylor Baird demanding city action.

“It is a sculpture of two hands open, painted Red & Black, and formed into Devil Horns,” she wrote in an email Friday, calling the art anti-Christian, demonic, and completely inappropriate for showcase near a family attraction.

She demanded the city move the 6-foot Spider-Man sculpture because it’s ugly, perverse and a “hate crime against the church.”
