CRUCIFIXION POPSICLE

2012 Laser-engraved wood and Holy wine 2-1/2 x 5in (6,4 x 12,7 cm) Frozen red wine popsicles are distributed as cocktail refreshments to art gallery attendants, inviting them to “drink the Kool-Aid.” The artist claims he previously carried the frozen wine popsicles to church, concealed inside a cooler, where they were then inadvertently blessed by the priest while he was turning wine into the blood of Christ during the Eucharist. The holy blood popsicle and its uniquely designed cross stick is a comment from the artist on the close relationship between extreme religious fanaticism and religious bloodbaths throughout history.
