  • Christopher

    These are incredible!

  • mickaëlle ruckert

    Nice, but I can’t help but think of Wim Delvoye.

  • Ralf

    Reminds me of the scifi book Absolution Gap (Alastair Reynold). Very cool

  • Peebs

    This is wonderful! Everyone associates churches with war and now you’ve just went ahead and displayed that in the most quaint and witty manor!

    • floyd

      correction-”everyone on the politically correct left ” associates churches with war.

  • perfect statement. How big are these pieces? They are wonderful as is everything I’ve seen by this artist.

  • Gianni Degryse

    Yes, this looks like Wim Delvoye but way too obvious, not subtle. The message is so simple….

  • argos

    if only all religious institutions looked like this then maybe we’d have peace.
