Nobody wants to see a statue with a boner. Whether it's Jesus, or anyone else.
get over yourselves.
Then we should have burned Leonardo and Michelangelo at the stake. For that matter, the guy who makes those paint-by-number Jesus pictures.
It's all or nothing homey.

Leonardo and Michelangelo wern't 'holy' people; let alone head of any religious organizations.
I might have a 'male-looking' avatar, but I'm not a homey.
22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.

For crying out loud, how many times do I have to repeat myself. Do you actually read the posts? I will say it again one last time.
Its called having some respect. Geesh!
Look, try and think about your immediate family. You would not want someone to show disrespect by cursing at your momma or grandma would you? You would not want someone to show disrespect to your sister or mother my making vile gestures to them. I guess in the name of art anything goes and respect & civility just goes out the window.
there are no substantial archaeological evidences which accurately depicts how Christ looks.
I'm a member of a conspiracy discussion board and your recent 'controversial' Jesus statue has incurred quite a debate. There are some of us who are essentially laughing at these fundamental Christians freaking out, and others who are defending them massively. If you're interested in what some are saying (not that you necessarily would be) here's a link.
If you want my personal opinion, I've made it quite clear in the thread.
And as you probably know by the number of hits on your site, any controversy is good controversy.
peace to you too ras!
i hope jesus wood forgive me

Dear Mr Koh
I went onto your website after hearing about your sculpture of Jesus Christ the Holy Son of God and I shouldn’t be surprised from what I saw, pornographic muck, what sort of a mind do you have? This is not art it is filth how do you dare vilify the Holy son of God! Jesus who was perfect love came to earth and died for your sins Mr Koh. I will pray that you will repent and ask God to forgive your sins.
“For GOD so loved TERENCE KOH that HE gave his only begotten SON, that if TERENCE KOH Believeth in HIM, TERENCE KOH shall not perish but have everlasting life” John 3 v 16.
Even you can be forgiven if you but turn to God and ask for forgiveness of your sins, if you do not then Hell is where you will go when you die and it will last for eternity turn now to the one you have vilified and be saved before it is too late.
Yours in Jesus Christ

Thank you so much for praying for me.
I deeply appreciate it and need it.
I know that I have sinned greatly and myself have prayed in private recently for the forgiveness of what I have done.
I only hope the Lord will forgive me as he is full of generosity and spirit.

The Lord will forgive you He loves you and gave His life for you on the cross of Calvary, the people who crucified Him with nails on the cross as He was suffering in agony and dying, He said "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing." Luke 23 V 34. He forgave them and if you pray with all your heart and are truly repentant He will forgive you and the joy He gives is like none other.
I will keep praying for you that the Lord will come into your heart and that you will find peace.
Yours in Jesus Christ

I had the great misfortune of having to see the Zabludowicz Collection at the Baltic Centre yesterday when a number of us - mainly Catholics - met to object to the blasphemous & pornographic image on show there. I viewed the pieces unwillingly but it was necessary so that I could raise my concerns with both the officials of the centre & with the police.
Apart from the fact that, in my opinion, none of the works in the collection show any merit whatsoever, I found it particularly offensive that your depiction of Jesus Christ with an erect penis should be based on a statue of the Sacred Heart of Jesus which holds a place of special sanctity within our religion. Not only that but it seems as if you have simply copied an existing statue of the Sacred Heart & added the monstrosity as an afterthought. I wonder whether such an action might infringe on someone's copyright? You have no need to worry about someone infringing your copyright as, quite frankly, you have produced absolutely nothing worth copying.
It is said that you are Chinese & no doubt in the fullness of time that inhuman regime, which you appear to support, will reward you with some base honour - perhaps 'Hero of Pornography'? - for carrying out their avowed intent to remove all religion.
Many of us will continue to pray for you, the owner of the collection (who must have more money than sense) & the misguided officials of the Baltic Centre for allowing such disgusting images to be publicly displayed.
