Austrian artist criticized for image of crucified hen

August 19, 2013

The Observatory on Intolerance and Discrimination against Christians, which documents anti-Christian hostility in Europe, reports that an Austrian artist is facing criticism for a new work that portrays a crucified hen.

The work will be on display in Wiener Neustadt’s city museum, formerly a monastery.

Artist Deborah Sengl, whose previous works have taken aim at the priesthood and Pope Benedict, insisted that her new work is a criticism of cruelty against animals, not Christianity.
