Underbridge Homeless Jesus

This remarkable piece of work was crafted by two Polish badasses – painter and street artist Daniel Kalinski aka Chazme, and sculptor Tomasz Górnicki. Installed under a bridge in Warsaw, Underbridge Homeless Jesus was positioned in such a way that it becomes illuminated by natural light coming from above.

The use of simple materials is quite unusual for the depiction of Christ's figure, a subject usually crafted in luxurious metals, like bronze and gold. The sculpture also poses a challenge to its viewers. Does its simplicity change the way we now see the image? Can we still regard him as the Son of God?
