The Saddam Shark has been banned in a small town in Belgium.
But Mr Landuyt felt its exhibition would be too much for the small Belgian seaside town. "In my view, it was too shocking," he said.
"They wanted to put this piece in a location where many children come, so that couldn't be allowed," he told the BBC.
He added that the work was now going to be displayed in a museum in the Belgian city of Ostend.
"When you go to a museum and are prepared to see those things and there is an explanation, perhaps there is no problem. But when you come somewhere where you don't expect that, it can be a problem," he said.
