On August 29, 2007 the winner of the 2007 Blake Prize was announced. According to the Blake Prize website, “The Blake Prize for Religious Art is one of the more prestigious art prizes in Australia. For 55 years it has been awarding a prize for works of art that explore the subject of religious awareness and spirituality.” This year’s winner was Shirley Purdie and her piece “Stations of the Cross”. However, the winning piece isn’t what people are talking about.
