    State Department wants $400K for camel sculpture in Pakistan: report

    The State Department wants to plunk down $400,000 in taxpayer money for a camel sculpture at the new U.S. Embassy being built in Islamabad, Pakistan, according to a report Monday.

    “Camel Contemplating Needle,” created by American artist John Baldessari, depicts a 500-pound white camel made of fiberglass staring at the eye of an oversized needle, Buzzfeedfirst reported.

    Officials explained the decision to purchase the sculpture in a four-page document justifying a “sole source” procurement.

    “This artist’s product is uniquely qualified,” the document states. “Public art which will be presented in the new embassy should reflect the values of a predominantly Islamist country.”

    Just a friendly reminder that six months ago "the cupboard [was] bare."

    It's been ten years since that lonely day I left you
    In the morning rain, smoking gun in hand
    Ten lonely years but how my heart, it still remembers
    Pray for me, momma, I'm a gypsy now

    I thought Muslims were forbidden to create representational art (or presumably to view it). How is this camel thing in line with that?

    Wouldn't the embassy be better off with architectural designs, landscaping, and abstract motifs?
