Italy: Virgin Mary cradling black refugee ‘Jesus’ stuns Milan

An art exhibition featuring a duplicate of Michelangelo’s Pieta featuring the Virgin Mary holding a Nigerian refugee in the place of Jesus opened in Milan's Poggiali gallery on Thursday.
Scores attended the opening to witness a non-conventional work of art with many lining up outside the gallery to take a peek. Artist Fabio Viale revealed that he met Lucky Hei, a young Nigerian migrant of the Christian faith, in a refuge facility in Turin.
