EBay Canada stopped a Toronto gallery from selling paintings inspired by Jerusalem because of the artist’s assertion that they were painted in part with human blood. The “101 Views of Jerusalem” paintings were created by Montreal artist John David Margo, who said he used donated blood as a medium on the canvases. Blood supply officials have disputed that the artist obtained blood from one of their drives.
