This is a ‘creation’ involving what looks like a crucifix. If it helps, you could imagine a statue of your favourite god instead.

Now for the fun part: Well, it is plastic crucifix in a jar of the artist’s urine. [Here is the entire explanation.]

Before you get outraged (more so if you heeded my advice and imagined your favourite god), here is how art can help push boundaries: Stop for a moment and think why urine is bad? Or why it has any negative connotation at all?

Because we decided so.

Just as easily, we could decide not so.

If you’re Christian, I do respect your outrage at the above creation — as long as your reaction does not infringe on someone else’s rights.
