Many of Serrano’s works encompass symbols of Catholicism, mixing the sacred and the secular in such a way that one cannot easily tell if the artist is profaning the sacred or raising the parochial to a divine level. His easy familiarity with these vestments and ecclesiastical objects borders on profanity, and yet the artist's ardor is evident. In this image, the artist harkens back to his childhood home that contained only a statue of the Madonna and a picture of Christ with a sacred heart.

Andres Serrano (b. 1950, New York) is an American photographer and artist who is most well known for his photographs of corpses and his use of feces and bodily fluids in his work. Serrano, from a half Honduran and half Afro-Cuban background, considers himself to be a self-taught photographer and his most famous piece of work was “Piss Christ,” which featured a crucifix submerged in the artist’s urine.
