A distraction in an almost-cathedral

When I attended the concert at St Thomas's, St Helier, this week, I was slightly shall we say 'taken aback' by the building's decorations. I am told that it has recently had a major refurbishment, and there were some very colourful statues poised over my head which clearly didn't date from antiquity. Likewise the main window, which was attractive but distinctly new.
However, what made my eyes pop was a painting which stared at me as I sat in my aisle pew. I am sure it is supposed to be Mr Christ ... but, goodness me, the painter seems to have gone to Raging Stallion for his model ... and Boot's, the chemist, for his style ... what do you think?
