Visitors to a park in Xi'an were left slightly scarred, after a series of graphic statues were recently unveiled.

The statues, which are open to the public, have received heavy criticism online, with some going as far to say the works of art are pornographic.

While some of the erotic sculptures only showed nude bodies, others were more graphic and featured lovers in an intimate embrace. One commenter went as far to say that China was no place for this kind of work, despite it being popular in other countries.

The artist of the statues has not been revealed. 

Let's just hope these sculptures don't suffer the same fate as the Yang Guifei statue, also in Xi'an. That sculpture, which was unveiled last year, drew attention online after visitors would not stop groping it.
