The contentious “Guardian for International Peace and Security” sculpture, which many Christians compared to a biblical “End Times beast,” has finally been removed from the Visitors Plaza outside the United Nations headquarters, where it was first displayed in November.

According to initial reports to The Christian Post, the artwork was removed from the Visitor’s Plaza in late December due to public objections. However, a spokeswoman for the secretary-general, Stéphane Dujarric, said that the display was only temporary and that it was taken down as planned.

“The monument you’re referring to was part of a temporary exhibit put up by Mexico’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations. It was taken down on December 20th, as planned and expected,” Dujarric said in a statement to CP on Monday.

Conservative Christian outrage over the artwork erupted after the United Nations tweeted a photo of the exhibit on Nov. 9, prompting references to biblical passages such as Daniel 7:2–4, which describes a vision of beasts representing governments, one of which is depicted with a lion’s body and eagle’s wings.

Christians also highlighted Revelation 13:2, which depicts Satan bestowing power and dominion on a beast. I Thessalonians 5:3 was also mentioned, which speaks of the End Times, when people will declare, “There is peace and security,” only to be surprised by the disaster.

The sculpture, which was constructed by artists Jacobo and Maria Angeles and gifted by the government of Oaxaca, Mexico, is unlikely to be the forerunner of the apocalypse as some Christians believe.

An Alebrije — a symbol of a mythological spirit guide found in Oaxacan folk art — is a fantasy fusion of elements in the contentious sculpture from both the jaguar and the eagle. Alejibres commonly have a variety of traits such as horns, antlers, wings, and fins in addition to brilliant color markings.

Prior to its presentation at the United Nations, the Guardian for International Peace and Security was on display at the Rockefeller Center from Oct. 22 to Nov. 2 as part of the Da de Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead celebrations, according to Hyperallergic.

Ricardo Angeles, the Angeles’ son and the Alebrijes’ chief designer, referred to them as “guardians” for the country’s immigrants.

“I adore New York and its architecture,” Angeles added, “particularly the Art Nouveau designs and the gargoyles on some of the buildings.” “I chose to construct magical figures that represented empathy and solidarity from us, the artisans who did not immigrate, toward our family members who live in the United States.”

“We wanted to offer them these guidelines so they could browse through them and see that they are not alone.” “That’s why we incorporated patterns that reference the [Mexico-US] border, such as netting or boundaries,” he explained. “It’s a very modern emblem blended with my family’s very traditional symbolism,” she says.

Governor Alejandro Murat Hinojosa of the state of Oaxaca stated the alebrijes symbolized Zapotec culture.

“When you think about alebrijes, you think of the Zapotec societies, which claimed that before they were in their physical form, they symbolized the nagual, the spirit within us, the reason of existence,” he explained. “We confirm our purpose by being here today with the alebrijes.”

Tourists silently snapped photos of the United Nations building on Monday evening from the granite stairway at the northwest corner of Ralph Bunche Park, which is named after the first African American to win the Nobel Peace Prize.

The Isaiah Wall, a curved wall located at 1st Avenue and 43rd Street inscribed with a passage from Isaiah 2:4, was created and dedicated in 1948 during the establishment of the United Nations.
