Banksy’s new sculpture: Cardinal Sin

Banksy spoke to the BBC about his brilliant and funny new sculpture, Cardinal Sin, at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool. He made it by gluing bathroom tiles to the face of cardinal bust, to give the effect of a mosaiced photograph.

I love everything about the Walker Gallery — the Old Masters, the contemporary art, the rude girl in the cafe. And when I found out Mr Walker built it with beer money it became my favorite gallery. 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.

Juxtpoz says the piece was “made in response to the child abuse scandals that the church seems to be known for these days.”
