The most recent and much discussed artwork by Maurizio Cattelan arrived today in Milan’s piazza affari, in front of the Italian stock exchange building. The controversial monument is made in marble, about 4 meters high and has been allocated on a base that brings the sculpture to a total height of 11 meters. During the making process, the famed Italian artist changed the title from ‘Omnia Munda Mundis’ - literally meaning ’to the pure [men], all things [are] pure’, a Latin sentence that has entered a relatively common usage in many countries - to ‘L.O.V. E.’ 

All the fingers of the hand are cut off, except for the middle one.
