Kanye West Life-Size Crucifixion Sculpture Installed On Hollywood Boulevard

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the controversial Los Angeles-based artist unveiled on Wednesday a gold sculpture of a crucified Kanye West called “False Idol.” 

Located on the corner of Hollywood Boulevard and La Brea Avenue, the sculpture casts Kanye as Jesus during the crucifixion, with nails in his hands and a wreath around his head. 

However, it’s updated with bling around the neck. 

"The piece is intended to be as critical of us as consumers and the media as it is of Kanye himself,” the artist says. 

“We've created this idol from somebody who is clearly talented.” 

The sculpture is part of a series of free-standing pieces that Plastic Jesus has dropped in and around the Oscars in recent years.
