putins faith

"In August 2003, an art exhibit entitled “Caution: Religion” opened at Moscow’s Sakharov Museum.

Among the featured artworks was a Russian Orthodox-style icon with a hole instead of a head, where visitors could put their faces and picture themselves as the Almighty.

There was also a Coca-Cola logo against the usual red background, but with Jesus' face drawn next to it and the words, “This is my blood.” A sculpture was featured of a church made from vodka bottles.

Four days after its opening, the exhibit was vandalized by six men. The group was detained and charged with hooliganism, but after a publicity campaign conducted by a Russian Orthodox priest, the charges were dropped. According to Kishkovsky, the vandals themselves were members of the Orthodox Church."
