Our Lady of China, apparently:



Whattttttttttt

Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

Same dude, Sacred Mirrors, Christ and Sophia in "The Chapel of Sacred Mirrors which is ""Building an enduring sanctuary of visionary art to inspire every pilgrim's creative path and embody the values of love and evolutionary wisdom".

One look at his paintings, and the biography pretty much writes itself, it's amazing.

This self promoting and rather dubiously sourced article does make me wonder though what Nirvana and Beastie Boys had to do with any this?  My guess is, probably very very little.  I can however, see this kind of thing existing as some sales tent at the Burning Man festival.

My favorite tag on one of the pictures: "A visitor appreciates a work of art"

I'm not going to be posting as much on OC.Net as before. I might stop in once in a while though. But I've come to realize that real life is more important.

It's from Illuminidol, a shop that offers literally dozens of them. Their tagline is "Idolatry for the 21st century".

So, others are done better. Edit: I mean, they look more natural.

Lifted from a friend's Facebook post (I'm guessing he's atheist/agnostic).



Ramen!

Is your friend a traditional Al Dente Pastafarian, or one of those new colanderists.
