Artist Show Tony Blair and Wife Naked

The British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, has become less popular since the Iraq war has turned sour. In this year's Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts in London a artist, Michael Sandle, has created a piece that will be displayed at the show. The piece shows the prime minister and his wife, Cherie, naked as Adam and Eve being expelled from 10 Downing Street, the seat of the British government.

The artist told The Daily Telegraph he was 'so angry with the loss of life in Iraq, the chaos and the futility of war' that he completed the massive work within a space of 10 days.

The picture shows the couple in the center as Adam and Eve and on one side shows British soldiers beating Iraqi prisoners and on the other bodies being piled up.

Sandle has put a price of 85,000 dollars that he believes nobody would pay but if they did he would donate the money to charity.
