A Hollywood artist has made a statue portraying popular rap icon Kanye West as Jesus Christ.
The artist, whose name is coincidentally Plastic Jesus, labeled the statue "False Idol" to make it clear there was no religious meaning attached to it.
He said the statue is more of a social commentary on how the fans and the press idolize Kanye West and less of an act or symbol of worship.

Plastic added that the statue will be on display along Hollywood Boulevard in California before being part of an art gallery in Hollywood.
Kanye West has previously controversially portrayed himself as Jesus, for instance, on the cover of a Rolling Stone magazine issue and and the cover of one of his singles, Jesus Walks.
