Cardinal Sin

The Walker Art Gallery has a new addition to its collection - a statue of a Priest revised 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.
