Banksy   Cardinal Sin | Video

Art world’s l’enfant terrible is making headline once again. Always a provocateur, Banksy unveiled his new sculpture, Cardinal Sin, at http://liverpoolmuseums.org.uk/walker/” target=”_blank”>Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, England. A tile mosaic strategically placed on a replica bust of a cardinal, its a visual protest on the disturbing child abuse scandals that have swept through the Catholic Church in recent years, much like portrayal of criminals on the TV news. In a sardonic statement, Banksy added “I’m never sure who deserves to be put on a pedestal or crushed under one.”. Never the one to mince words, the artist stated during a brief interview with the http://bbc.co.uk” target=”_blank”>BBC that “…the statue? I guess you could call it a Christmas present. At this time of year it’s easy to forget the true meaning of Christianity – the lies, the corruption, the abuse.”
