Of the many exhibits I saw while visiting Liverpool's museums and galleries this one came out tops.
The most direct statement I have seen in a very long time on the hypocrisy of the church by a consummate artist - brilliant!
'The Walker Art Gallery has a new addition to its collection - a statue of a Priest vandalised by Banksy.
The renowned graffiti artist has sawn off the face of an 18th Century replica stone bust and glued on a selection of bathroom tiles. The resulting 'pixellated' portrait is entitled 'Cardinal Sin' and is believed to be a comment on the abuse scandal in the Church and its subsequent cover- up.
" I'm never sure who deserves to be put on a pedestal or crushed under one "
The sculpture has been loaned indefinitely by the artist and has never been seen before.'
