Further Update: to ensure that there is no reflection on either the Exhibition concerned or on Crafthaus, I have removed my original text at the request of the Curator of the exhibition.

UPDATE: It seems that I have been misinformed about this. Please see my newest entry for details. I am letting this entry stand for reasons of completeness but have to state that the information in this post, which I published in good faith appears to be inaccurate. This information came directly from Nicolas and I am not clear where it became misrepresented.

I felt sorry for what happen to Nicolas, he is a wonderful artist from Colombia that now lives in Spain.
I agree with 2Roses ;D .

Just one detail: Nicolas is colombian, not spanish.

It is shocking but I also like the positive outlook of "milking it"!

Taken as a pr opportunity, US customs probably did Nicolas a backhanded favor. Nothing stirs interest in art like controversy, and being banned is the penultimate controversy. Use it, flaunt it, wear it like a badge of honor. Art so shocking it eclipsed American freedom of speech.

This is unbelievable. I think I'm in shock. "Armed Jewelry" brings to mind many disturbing images none of which should be banned. In fact perhaps this needs to be the title of a new international show.
