Police in the US state of New Jersey have ordered a family to cover up their snow sculpture of the famous nude Venus de Milo after a neighbour complained.

Eliza Gonzalez sculpted the snow-woman with her son and daughter on her front lawn in Rahway following a snowstorm.

It may be decent, but is it art?



  1. I have never dressed any of my snowmen except for perhaps a hat and scarf nor have I seen any well dressed snowmen of late. This is blatant discrimination and should be brought to the attention of whomever is in charge of winter !

  2. Is the neighbor John Ashcroft?
    This is the kind of nonsense that makes me want to move to Europe.
