I can understand the reasoning on this one - Christianity advertises itself (on a theoretical level, like all religions) as peaceful and inspiring. Then we have a sculpture that, as art, does an excellent job of sparking conversation of its subject matter.
I have to admit that it's a pretty powerful peace, and one could pull a lot of meaning from the expression on Jesus's face. Personally, I think it represents the conflicts between the establishment of religion and the philosophy of a man. (Would Gandhi be considered a religious symbol in 1000 years?)
Not as provocative as 'Chocolate Jesus', but it's up there!
