Greggs has apologised after the infant Jesus was replaced with a half-eaten sausage roll in a new Christmas-themed calendar.
Inspired by Greggs controversy, artist paints Jesus with sausage roll, ketchup
Just days after the bakery Greggs apologised for replacing Jesus with a sausage roll in a nativity scene, an artist has painted Jesus, using a Greggs sausage roll as the paint brush and ketchup as the paint.
Nathan Wyburn, a former Britain's Got Talent contestant, said he uses food, glitter and anything he can for his work.
He told Premier about the motive for his new masterpiece.
He said: "Honestly it was just a little fun, people were upset that Greggs replaced baby Jesus with a sausage roll so I took it upon myself to bring him back!
"So to speak... It's light humour with no harm intended obviously. I work with food a lot in my artwork anyway and it just seemed fitting.
"Art is meant to spark conversation and I think it does that."
Wyburn uploaded a video showing how he created the portrait of Jesus.
He said he ate the sausage roll afterwards.
