JESUS CHRIST WAS TOAST FOR OUR SINS

From THE TELEGRAPH:

An artist has stunned a church congregation after creating this giant replica of the Crucifixion - made from 153 slices of burned toast. Adam Sheldon, 33, designed the unique piece of art six months ago at the request of his mother who worships at the Anglican Church of St Peter, in Great Limber., Lincs.

Using his toaster, artist Adam, burned every piece of bread before drying them out and flattening them so they were ready to be positioned in a giant frame. He then spent hours scraping the toast with a knife to create the lighter parts of the image, such as Christ's halo, and a blow torch to create darker patches. His Crucifixion picture now measures six feet (1.8m) by three-and-a-half feet (1.1m) and was mounted on the wall of St Peter's knave (sic) on January 30.

  1. “Knave”? You mean “nave”, don’t you?
    They have a giant playing card on the wall otherwise.

  2. Well, at least they didn’t claim the toast squares simply appeared that way and in that order right out of their toaster and are now trying to auction it off on eBay.

  3. I think it’s beautiful.

    [But what do I know? I’ve just come from TA, where the malcontents are CONTINUING to rant re “clown masses, raisin cakes to the Queen of Heaven, Pirate masses” and other alleged sins of TEC.]

  4. mealybugs….mold….. This artist seems to have the philosophy that the sculptor Goldworthy has – “it’s all temporary”.
