Artist defends mosaic

A Catholic artist who pieced together 1,500 classical images of Jesus Christ to form a mosaic portrait of President Bush is defending the artwork against charges that it is "blasphemous." Frank Bear, owner of JesusMosaics.com, used a computer program to take "hundreds and hundreds" of sacred images from Renaissance artists to form the colorful mosaic of Bush. The $15 image, he says, "honors both President Bush and Jesus Christ."
