    There Is A Giant Breakdancing Jesus In Bristol Now

    Why the hell not, eh?

    A wall in Bristol has been painted with a 8.5m breakdancing Jesus.

    The work, by Cosmo Sarson, is opposite Banksy's famous Mild Mild West artwork in Stokes Croft.

    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.
