Piss Christ

I discovered this picture on Tim's blog with a beautiful poem that he has written.

I'd never heard of this picture before, but you can read all about it here. It's a photograph done in 1987 by the artist Andres Serrano.

It caused a lot of controversy when it was released, but Sister Wendy Beckett stated that it is 'what we have done to Christ'.

I find it an extremely powerful image. What do you think?
