3. According to James Pike, the businessman who commissioned the painting, it is a “celebration of Bristol’s proud history of religious tolerance”.

Sarson was inspired by a 2004 Vatican event which saw breakdancers perform for Pope John Paul II. Breakdancing Jesus took a week to finish and contains over 1kg (2.5lbs) of gold glitter.
