The artist is a Jewish Indian whose father was Hindu.
Of course for the antisemites, the Jewish side of his parentage is the issue, not the Indian side.

Versailles: Vandals target ‘Queen’s vagina’ again
A controversial sculpture, known as the “queen’s vagina”, that is on display at the Palace of Versailles, was vandalised on Sunday for the second time. The French president condemned the anti-Semitic graffiti scrawled all over the installation.
Officially known as “Dirty Corner,” the giant steel funnel that artist Anish Kapoor himself has described as “very sexual” was covered in anti-Semitic graffiti in white paint, said Versailles president Catherine Pegard.
Phrases such as “Queen sacrificed, twice insulted” and “the second rape of the nation by deviant Jewish activism” covered the sculpture by the British-Indian artist.
“This act of intolerable violence against the work of an international artists shocks and saddens me,” Pegard told journalists after inspecting the damage.
