Thirty two crucifixes wearing the home football shirts of all competing nations. Each sculpture is cast in hard-wearing resin, is hand painted and varnished. The dimensions are twenty four by fourteen centimetres and come with a sturdy ring to hang them.

Karl Marx said that “Religion is the opium of the masses.” I believe that football is the new opiate and my sculpture Football Jesus brings both these philosophies together in one powerful image. The Crucifix as a symbol has been the subject for artists for centuries and each artist has portrayed it in their own way from Raphael to Francis Bacon. This is my take on it.
