BBC Africa/Maximilian Kasseh, Jr.

A South African private school has come under fire for exhibiting artwork at the institution that is considered "satanic" and "blasphemous" to the Christian faith.

The display, which is reportedly the work of a student at Grantleigh High School in Richard Bays town in the province of KwaZulu-Natal, featured drawings of Jesus and other Biblical references which some people view as sacrilegious.

It also had a depiction of Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper with dollar signs on the lintel behind Jesus and torn pages from the Bible placed on the torso of a horned sculpture.

Local Pastor Andrew Anderson, a parent at the school, filmed the artwork and shared it with news site News24.

The video has also been widely shared on Facebook and Twitter.
