A marble sculpture of Christ laden with diamonds, rubies and pearls which is claimed to be worth £70 million is being offered to Canterbury Cathedral by a mysterious reclusive artist.
Apparently, a 15-foot-high triptych, by Kongthin Pearlmich, which weighs a total of three tons, and which went on display this week in the chapel of King's College, Cambridge, is being offered to Canterbury Cathedral. The story carried a photograph of the work, entitled The Man Delusion. Little though is known about the artist, who apparently sells only to a handful of private clients.
