"For Pete's Sake" Pete Doherty on the Cross
Nick Reynolds, son of the Great Train Robbery assailant Bruce Reynolds has created this piece: "For Pete's Sake" featuring Pete Doherty in marble on a plywood cross. As you might expect, this piece hasn't been without controversy, especially after it was publicly displayed in St Marylebone Parish Church. If ever there was a time for the quote "He's not the messiah, he's a very naughty boy", truly this is it.
The artwork is currently at auction at Paddle8 where it's been given a guide price of £33,000 for the piece which was unveiled just a few weeks ago. The sale is in benefit of the Missing Tom foundation.
