Statue of Freud Having His Body Torn Open Is Just What Every Plaza Needs

This one in coming to New York in June

Austrian street artist Nychos' statue of Sigmund Freud being dissected will be displayed in New York City's Flatiron Plaza from June 16 to 18. The statue, which features a stern-featured, marker-brandishing Freud split down the middle to release his happy skeleton and large brain is meant to "[pay] homage to the visionary's inner life as the pioneer of psychoanalysis." But really, how much explanation do you need to want to see this statue in person?
