Breakdancing Jesus

Why would anyone want a giant Breakdancing Jesus (2013)? Somebody did, because the Canteen diner in Stokes Croft, Bristol, commissioned artist Cosmo Sarson to paint its 8.5 metre-thingy-high wall. He used a kilo-thingy of glitter to paint the background. I think the traditional gold halo would have been quite enough. The painting was inspired by a real event: in 2004 breakdancers performed at the Vatican for an enthusiastic Pope John Paul II (CLICK). In loin cloths?
