Alexander Kosolapov's Hero, Leader, God seems to suggest Lenin and Christ as (same sex?) parents of Mickey Mouse. He is well-known for linking consumer culture images with both Lenin and Christ which caused apoplexy in some religious leaders. A caviar Virgin Mary was removed from one exhibition whereas another Coca-Cola poster with a face of Christ and the slogan Coca-Cola: This is My Blood was vandalised during an exhibition at the Sakharov Centre in Moscow in 2003. The curators and gallery directors were persecuted rather than the vandals themselves.
