At a British museum in 2006, a stand for displaying sculpture was mistakenly exhibited as an artwork. The pedestal was made of stone, and was only meant to hold a bone-shaped branch of a tree on top of it, but the Royal Academy of Art thought that it was an artwork itself and ended up exhibiting it. Afterwards, it was discovered that the stand was in fact not a work of art, but just a simple stand. Actually, the bone-shaped branch was supposed to sit on top of it, and on top of that, a sculpture of a human head was supposed to be exhibited. According to the Royal Academy of Art, “the mistake occurred because the sculpture and the pedestal were shipped separately,” and they “thought that the pedestal and the sculpture were two artworks, and were considered for exhibition as such. In the end, it was decided that the pedestal was more worthy of exhibiting, and the sculpture of the human head was left out.”The Academy followed this by stating that they “have safely stored the sculpture, and are currently making preparations to return it to the artist. The artist understands that the work will not be exhibited as planned.” Talk about “free interpretation!”
