Notorious street artist Banksy has once against sparked controversy with his latest piece, a vandalised bust of a priest entitled 'Cardinal Sin' which has been unveiled in - and loaned indefinitely to - the Walker Gallery in Liverpool.
The bust's face has been sawed off and replaced with blank tiles, similar to how a criminal's face is blocked out on television or in the newspapers. The piece is said to be in response to the child abuse scandal and subsequent cover-up in the Catholic church.
"I'm never sure who deserves to be put on a pedestal or crushed under one," Banksy said in an accompanying statement. "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."
The director of art galleries at National Museums Liverpool Reyahn King said Banksy approached the gallery and specified that his sculpture be shown alongside the gallery's period collection such as an alterpiece painted for the Archbishop of Saville by the Spanish artist Murillo in 1673 and Rubens' painting The Virgin and Child with St Elizabeth and the Child Baptist.
There's no doubt Banksy's 'Cardinal Sin' will anger members of the Catholic Church, but what do you think about the world's most notorious street artist's new gallery work?
