Abdessemed borrowed the image of Christ crucified from Mattias Grünewald to create four crucified Christ, laced with industrial grade razor wire. His work will be shown for the first time in Europe from April 27 to September 16, 2012 in Colmar. AFP PHOTO / PATRICK HERTZOG (Photo credit should read PATRICK HERTZOG/AFP/Getty Images)
