But then I read the caption: “Banksy’s new sculpture- Cardinal Sin”
It’s meant to be a comment on the church’s response to the recent child abuse accusations, I see!
So I thought I’d give you a knowledgeable well developed, refined opinion of this exquisite piece.
Actually no- let’s cut the crap, it's very cool.
And Cardinal Sin? What a great name!
Using tiles as pixelated facial features to contrast with the old fashioned bust, in order to make a statement? That's cool. Better still, a statement challenging organised religion? Very cool.
Whilst some of Banksy’s work (in particular his graffiti work) doesn’t really have a great message, I think this is far stronger and less vague. What do I mean by that? Well, his work is often quite pretentious and meaningless, but on the surface, looks quite deep and intelligent. Take a look at these examples.
