“Cardinal Sin” by Banksy.

Banksy cardinal sin sculpture

The artist’s latest work, a scathing critique of the Catholic Church and its child abuse scandals, was just unveiled at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, England. Bathroom tiles obscure the face of the priest. Banksy added, “I’m never sure who deserves to be put on a pedestal or crushed under one.”

This is only the second time Banksy has created work for a gallery.
