A mural of Jesus breakdancing has caught the attention of many in an English town.
It took four days and more than 2 pounds of glitter for artist Cosmo Sarson to create the mural, which is displayed on a 28-foot wall in the town of Bristol.
Sarson said he was inspired by an actual event that took place in the Vatican in 2004, where breakdancers performed before an applauding Pope John Paul II.
An art competition judge, quoted in a story posted on The Daily Mirror website, said of the mural: "The work raises questions about how Christ would interact and communicate with contemporary culture if He returned today."
