Too Controversial For New York?

From the NYTimes:
Artwork in an exhibition that drew thousands to the Chelsea Market for its opening last week was abruptly taken down over the weekend after the market's managers complained about a portrait of President Bush fashioned from tiny images of chimpanzees, according to the show's curator.

I thought the artist captured his essence. Maybe some animal-rights outfit objected to the pornographic, demeaning use of the chimps in the portrayal of a lower life form.
