A statue created to honor the memory of liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and a warning about threats to women’s “constitutional progress” is arranged to be set on display at the University of Houston, much to the understandable annoyance of Texas Right to Life.

The statue has been denounced by the pro-life organization as a “satanic abortion idol” for its eerie animalistic imagery and the artist’s stated intent to defend abortion “rights” and honor the memory of the late pro-abortion and radical feminist justice.

The statue was part of an exhibition created by Pakistani-born artist Shazia Siskander and co-comissioned with Madison Square Park, where it was put on display last year.

The multimedia work was titled “Havah,” which is Arabic and Hebrew for “Eve” and also means “air” or “atmosphere” in Urdu. The artist noted, “Eve is also the first law-breaker, right?”

The large-scale statue “Witness” features a gold, idol-like female figure wearing braids that coil in a manner reminiscent of Baphomet’s chimeric goat horns as well as a lace collar added to pay homage to Ginsburg’s signature courtroom style.

Her arms and legs curl into roots which Texas Right to Life noted gives a snake-like effect, and she stands suspended in the middle of a hoop skirt of sorts that was designed to resemble the dome of the Manhattan Appellate Courthouse.

Last year, Siskander told The New York Times that she chose to honor Ginsburg because she was a “fierce woman and a form of resistance in a space that has historically been dominated by patriarchal representation.”

“With Ginsburg’s death and the reversal of Roe, there was a setback to women’s constitutional progress,” she added.

The statue is set to be put on display at the Cullen Family Plaza at the University of Houston from February 28 through October 31.

Texas Right to Life, which invites locals to visit the campus on those days to peacefully protest the statue’s presence, notes that “Disobedience to God certainly should not be esteemed by society, much less lauded with a statue.”

“On the contrary, art should reflect truth, goodness, and beauty: three timeless values that reveal the nature of God. Art cannot have beauty without truth. Art cannot have truth without goodness.”
