"At the New Orleans Lakefront Airport is 'Fountain of the Four Winds,' one of the most famous and controversial sculptures of Enrique Alferez."
"The artist gained the most notice for the "Fountain of the Four Winds" sculpture that he created for the New Orleans Lakefront Airport in 1937, which included a well-endowed nude male. City officials ordered Alferez to chisel off the genitalia, but the artist refused. To ensure that no one desecrated his artwork, he stood guard with a rifle until Eleanor Roosevelt intervened to save the statue."
Here's what it used to look like.
