Artists sparked fury after designing a crazy golf course featuring a model of – ADOLF HITLER.
The golf hole sees players knock a ball into a tunnel under the belt of the Fuhrer – wearing his trademark brown shirt and red swastika armband.
It even raises its arm in a Nazi salute and shouts “nein nein nein” when the ball passes underneath.
The Hitler golf hole is part of a course which also features a mini statue of Saddam Hussein – which topples over when a ball drops into the hole.
It features in an exhibition called ‘Doug Fishbone and Friends: Adventureland Golf’ – nine holes with weird and wacky models.
The course was designed by top British artists including Jake and Dinos Chapman, David Shrigley, Gary Webb, and Doug Fishbone.
Doug has described it as ”crazy golf with a difference” and is being displaying at the Arnolfini art gallery in Bristol.
The Board of Deputies of British Jews has slammed the work as “tasteless” and said it had “absolutely no artistic value whatsoever”.
But London-based American curator Doug Fishbone said it has been taken the wrong way.
He said: “The spirit of the piece is actually mocking the subject and not anyone else.
“It is tasteless, I agree. But I don’t think it is the artist’s intention to offend anyone. I am surprised to see it caused any controversy because it is so obvious and brash.”
