Banksy spoke to the BBC about his brilliant and funny new sculpture, Cardinal Sin, at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool. He made it by gluing bathroom tiles to the face of cardinal bust, to give the effect of a mosaiced photograph.

I love everything about the Walker Gallery -- the Old Masters, the contemporary art, the rude girl in the cafe. And when I found out Mr Walker built it with beer money it became my favorite gallery. The statue? I guess you could call it a Christmas present. At this time of year it's easy to forget the true meaning of Christianity -- the lies, the corruption, the abuse.

Juxtpoz says the piece was "made in response to the child abuse scandals that the church seems to be known for these days."

Did he sculpt the bust or just put tiles on the face?

If all he did was buy a bust and glue tiles to it then yes it is clever and funny but brilliant and worth thousands? No. If he sculpted that bust himself then hats off to him. If he went to Home Depot or whatever they have in England and bought 25 tiles and spent all of $10 then well :oops:
