A part-time artist is attracting controversy for his photos in which petite white women are draped around his neck as scarves.
Nate Hill, 36, is a self-described performance artist. The New Yorker's latest stunt, titled Trophy Scarves, is intended to draw attention to the social complexities surrounding mixed-race relationships.

Any less "art" than the Anglo "art thief" Damien Hirst's sheep in the formaldehyde tank.

This English crapper mass produced his tank sheeps, and he can off-load them to them stoopid Anglos for $millions.
