BRISTOL, ENGLAND - JUNE 11: General view of graffiti art close to artist Cosmo Sarson's mural of Jesus breakdancing that he has painted on the 8.5 metre wall beside The Canteen in Stokes Croft and is being officially unveiled this evening is reflected in a window, on June 11, 2012 in Bristol, England. The artist was commissioned by The Canteen to paint the wall, which is directly opposite Banksy's Mild Mild West. The controversial 'Breakdancing Jesus', which took 4 days to paint and involved a kilo of glitter and was inspired by an actual event in the Vatican where breakdancers performed to an applauding Pope John Paul II in 2004, is likely to be the latest attraction for graffiti tourists visiting Bristol, often seen the spiritual home of underground artist Banksy.
