A poster in the southern Spanish city of Seville that depicts a young, handsome, Jesus wearing only a loincloth has unleashed a storm on social media. Some people are labeling it an affront to the figure of Christ and others have been posting lewd remarks and memes poking fun at the image. The poster by internationally recognized Seville artist Salustiano García Cruz shows a fresh-faced Jesus without a crown of thorns, no suffering face and miniscule wounds on the hands and ribcage. It was commissioned to promote Holy Week celebrations ahead of Easter in Seville. The artist has dismissed the poster’s critics as old fashioned. Seville’s mayor says he likes the poster.
