The BBC reports that Culture Club singer and gender bender Boy George recently returned a Christ icon he purchased 26 years ago from a London art dealer. Although Boy George didn't know it at the time, it's a sacred piece of art that was stolen from a church in New Chorio-Kythrea, Cyprus after the island country's 1974 Turkish invasion. "I have always been a friend of Cyprus and have looked after the icon for 26 years," the singer said. The icon was one of his favorite pieces of art, but he did the right thing and returned it.
