A graffiti version of the miraculous icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa, Poland.
The image was condemned by the hierarchy of the Polish church as sacrilegious, as it is part of a graffiti wall. The artist defended it as an attempt to interest young people in religion. In the meantime ordinary Catholics are placing flowers and candles in front of the image.
