A life size art-poster which blends Mickey Mouse's head with a body of a nude woman, lying down provocatively in front of the Nazi symbol, Swastika has caused much furore in Poland.

The extreme reaction to the satirical image shows that the memory of Nazi atrocities in Poland is still strong.

The poster, which was unveiled a month back, is an artist's take on what he calls the "horrors" of the American lifestyle.

"This art provocation is a form of violence against the sensitivity of many people," Norbert Napieraj told The Associated Press.

Mickey NudeThe Prosecutors, however, claim that the poster is art which does not violate the country's laws against glorifying Nazism.

The poster has been vandalised twice since it was put up but gallery director Maria Czarnecka said that she does not plan to remove it.

Czarnecka told The Associated Press, "Art should be provocative and controversial."

She insists that the poster does not intend to propagate Nazism but instead wants to explore "symbols and how they work."
