Description: Tony D'Amico (DNTT) (British, b.1960), Immaculate Deception, 2012, Galvanised carved steel and wood, Signed and dated in black marker verso, 790 x 460 mm (31 x 18 in), The artist describes the work as follows "this piece subverts the cultural branding that saturates our lives - The Nike swoosh (which is of course a tick), Apple's bitten apple, The Nazi swastika, Christ on the cross: they are all potent symbols which have been ideologically hijacked to suit the agenda of their new 'owners'. Jesus suffering on the cross conveys the agenda of the Papal Roman Empire - one of dominance, repression and its ruthless pursuit of power- that has nothing to do with Christ's original message of peace and love. In this sculpture, Christ is seen with a bloodied cow's head- a sacrificial offering. It attempts to expose the way the image of Jesus has been misrepresented to become the corporate symbol of religious control". Provenance: Mutate Britain, London
