Piss Christ

Many of Serrano's works include bodily fluids. Most famous of these is "Piss Christ", a photograph of a palstic crucifix submerged in a glass of the artist's own urine. This caused great controversy. The artist said the although his work was not intended to denounce religion, it alludes to a percieved commericalizing of Christian icons in comtemporary culture.
