The latest update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons has reduced the interest on all savings accounts, nerfed bug spawn rates, and now the Redd's statues appear to be causing a stir on social media.

Famous statues like Michaelangelo's 'David' and the Greek sculpture 'The Discobolus of Myron' obviously feature, but their um...bits, are now more visible than ever thanks to next-generation Nintendo hardware. This has quickly become a major talking point on social media – with some players seemingly missing the point these are accurate portrayals of well-known artworks from the Classic and Renaissance periods.

As you can see, it's ignited quite a bit of discussion. Some are standing by the statues as art, while others are voicing concerns about them being on display to younger players and bypassing censorship.

As far as we're concerned, these statues are works of art and we're sure anyone who is at least familiar with Classic and Renaissance art will agree. In saying this, tell us which side of the fence you are on in the comments down below.
