In 1994, the Milan gallerist Franco Toselli was slated to exhibit the Chapmans’ sculpture Mummy and Daddy Chapman, produced the year before. When Toselli received the work - two mannequins with genitalia sprouting from various parts of their bodies - he refused to show it.
As revenge, the Chapmans remodelled the head of ‘Daddy Chapman’ and substituted a dildo for his nose. The work was cast in fibreglass and resin, painted and given a wig.
