NEW YORK (August 3, 2000 2:14 p.m. EDT http://www.nandotimes.com) - David Lynch's off-screen art is apparently too gruesome even for New York.

The cow sculpture created by the director for a public art show is being returned to California without going on display, The New York Times reported Thursday.

Lynch, known for the eerie 1990s television drama "Twin Peaks," chopped off his cow's head and stuck forks and knives into its back. He also covered parts of the cow with a reddish, blood-like substance.

"I thought it was Charles Manson," city Parks Commissioner Henry J. Stern told the Times. "I don't know whether it's shock art or schlock art. David Lynch should stick to his day job, making movies."

CowParade NYC 2000 features several hundred fiberglass cows decorated by artists and schoolchildren and displayed on sidewalks around the city.

Lynch said he was disappointed to be excluded. "Don't you think when people tell you you're allowed to do whatever you want as long as it's not sexually X-rated that they should stand behind their word and show your cow?" Lynch said.

A cow by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, was rejected before the cow parade began in June and sued the city and organizers unsuccessfully.
