Work depicting Ronald McDonald as crucified Jesus has sparked violence in Haifa
An Israeli museum plans to withdraw a sculpture depicting the McDonald’s mascot as the crucified Jesus after protests that briefly united the country’s Christian minority, its populist culture minister and the pro-Palestinian artist.
The life-sized sculpture, titled McJesus, showing the Ronald McDonald clown on a cross has been at the centre of an exhibition about consumerism and religion. Other pieces depict Jesus and the Virgin Mary as the Ken and Barbie children’s dolls.
