London, Nov 27 (ANI): A Muslim artist has sparked outrage in the UK with his depiction of four angels flying above one of a bombed bus destroyed in the 7/7 terror attacks, which had left 13 people killed onboard.

The four angels depicted in his artwork resemble the same number of Al Qaeda terrorists who took part in the atrocity in 2005.

According to the Daily Mail, he has also drawn scores of ghostly souls shooting from the number 30 bus, which was travelling through Tavistock Square when it was attacked by suicide bomber Hasib Hussain.

Mark Sinckler, the artist behind the 3,500 pounds black and white artwork called 'Age of Shiva,' has said: "I want to shock."

The picture displayed an exhibition organised by Pictures on Walls only a mile away from where the 13 innocent commuters were killed as they travelled on the bus through central London.

The July 7, 2005 blast took place at the junction of Woburn Square and Tavistock Place, and ripped the roof of the bus. According to witnesses, half of the bus was flying in the air.

The paper quoted one of the relatives of a victim as saying that the artwork was 'unnecessary' and 'upsetting' to see.

The first of the four bomb attacks that day took place at around 8.50am on a Circle line train travelling between Liverpool Street and Aldgate, the second explosion was on another Circle line train which had just left Edgware Road on the way to Paddington and the third of the Tube attacks happened on a Piccadilly line train travelling between King's Cross St. Pancras and Russell Square, the paper said.

The incidents had left 52 people dead and injured over 700 hundred on London's transport network. (ANI)
