“Virgin Mary” image, frequently referred to as “Toxic Mary” by Banksy, was originally shown at “Turf War” exhibition in 2003. The location of the exhibition was kept secret until just a day before the event when an email was sent out giving an address of a deserted warehouse in Dalston, East London.
It is a poignant and insightful image that powerfully critiques organised religion.
