We recently visited the Walker Art Gallery and saw Cardinal Sin, a bust with its face sawn off and replaced by blank tiles, designed by Banksy as a response to the child abuse scandal in the Catholic church.
In a statement, Banksy said: “I’m never sure who deserves to be put on a pedestal or crushed under one.”
The sculpture was unveiled at the Walker Art Gallery, where it is sitting alongside 17th Century religious art.
The bathroom tiles have been put in place of the priest’s face to create a pixelated effect.
“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 favourite gallery,” said Banksy.
