(NEWSDAY) Neighbors of New York real estate mogul Aby Rosen are alarmed about a 33-foot-tall bronze sculpture of a nude pregnant woman and her fetus that he placed on his historic Old Westbury estate.

The dispute has reached the point that village Mayor Fred Carillo is pushing for height limits on outside artwork.

The statue, “The Virgin Mother,” by British artist Damien Hirst, displays the insides of nearly half of the woman’s body, with her skull, tissue and part of the fetus exposed, much of it painted red.
