New York City covered up a giant penis mural after complaints from the building’s landlord Thursday.

An enormous four-story tall mural of an erect penis popped up on the side of a building on Broome Street on the Lower East Side on Christmas Eve. The mural was painted by Swedish artist Carolina Falkholt from a commission by street art organization The New Allen, reported Mashable. The gigantic penis mural was meant to complement Falkholt’s five-storey tall vagina mural on Pike Street.

“I usually paint giant vaginas, pussies and cunts,” Falkholt told The Guardian. “And since I had just finished one on the side of a five-storey building, I felt like a dick was needed.”

Here are some other images of Falkholt’s past work.
