In celebration of New York Design Week, Brooklyn-based designer Sebastian Errazuriz created 100 “Christian Popsicles” made from the “frozen holy wine transformed into the blood of Christ.”
As for the blood of Christ, the Chilean artist said the wine was “inadvertently blessed by the priest while turning wine into the blood of Christ during the Eucharist.”
Errazuriz, who is no stranger to controversy, wants his Jesus popsicles to stand as a statement on fanaticism and violence.
“It’s not that I purposely want to get in trouble. I just believe if you are not doing work that can make people stop, think and discuss, then it’s better not to make any work at all,” he tells CNN.
Well he has certainly caught our attention.
