 King of Pop Owned a Collection of Shocking 'Paedo' Art
Late King of Pop Michael Jackson had spent millions on a shocking collection of "paedo" art. The legendary artist owned a large number of specially commissioned paintings, in which he featured surrounded by naked cherubs or children.

And now, six months after his death, some of his bizarre artwork have been unveiled.

One of the pictures, called "Michael", shows the 'Thriller' star striking the same pose as Michelangelo's statue of David with just a loincloth covering his privates.

In the picture, he has marble-white skin and he is surrounded by male cherubs.

Another painting 'Field Of Dreams', shows Jackson, who died in June aged 50, leading children along a yellow brick road.

The paintings were done by US artist David Nordahl, 68, who denied claims they were so-called "paedo art".

The shocking artwork has revealed in a new book about Jackson's life called 'Opus: The Ultimate Celebration Of An Icon'.

"These paintings are a way of seeing how Michael would like to have seen himself," the Daily Star quoted David as saying.

This is a deliberately inaccurate and misleading 'piece,' with a clear agenda of either comment-baiting and/or wilfully misleading those who read it.

As someone who recently purchased the Opus, I can confirm that the picture(s)referred to, are in no way paedophiliac in nature or context. I would like to add here that I would not have been interested in buying the book if they were.

The insinuations made in this article are also highly likely to be damaging for sales of the Opus which, as anyone who has bought it knows -is a beautifully presented, high-end, quality publication that has been endorsed by Sony, The Kraken Opus Franchise and The Michael Jackson Estate.

This article's inference that artwork included in the Opus book could, or would in any way contain pornography involving children is not only ludicrous, but in my opinion, could well form the basis for possible legal action.

For those who are interested: Mr Jackson commissioned a series of paintings with himself in classical/mythical settings - some of which incorporated cherubic elements that closely follow the stylings of traditional fine art.

Reading anything more than an appreciation of art into Mr Jackson's collection is grossly misrepresentative, and this article will now be passed on to those it may concern.

The article in no way represents the views of medindia, the onus is totally on the source that has provided the news item. If it is withdrawn by the publisher we will withdraw it too.
