There is a life-size status of Kanye West as an all-gold Jesus on Hollywood Boulevard in LA right now. This is just in time for the Oscars on Sunday, as the statue is located just a block away from where the awards will go down.

Street artist Plastic Jesus is the man behind the statue – named “False Idol” – and tells The Hollywood Reporter that he made it to symbolize Ye’s recent “fall from grace.”

“The piece is as critical of us as consumers as it is of Kanye himself,” Plastic Jesus said. “He’s a genius at writing and producing but he’s not a God, and that’s where we put him. Until there’s an issue in his life or a hiccup in his career, then we crucify him,” he adds.

Get a closer look at the piece below. Think I’m going to go check that out in person this weekend…
