UPDATE: The 'Tree' has been attacked by vandals overnight, more information here.

Don't snigger it's a Christmas tree. Seriously, it's by a renowned artist and it's called 'Tree'.

But yes, it totally looks like a butt plug.

The 24 foot, inflatable piece by Paul McCarthy has been installed in the Place Vendôme in Paris, usually more famous for it's stunning 18th century architecture.

Well by 'mixed' we mean no one believes it's a Christmas Tree.

Room for improvement?

Besty makes a valid point to be fair.

And in all fairness, on balance it's gone down pretty well.

For those wanting to indulge their sex-toy shaped fetishes further, visitors can also peruse a gallery filled with smaller versions of the 'Tree'.

Paul McCarthy has a history of fairly provocative artwork having previously displayed a pair of sculptures of George W Bush having sex and a Christmas dwarf holding a tree that looked like, yes you've guessed it, a butt plug.
