I came across this is a newspaper. Colorful holy figurine? Why yes. Pure and sacred? Not exactly. While this homage to Jesus Christ certainly appears lovely, the carefully painted 6 lb statue is actually made of cocaine which was seized during transport across the border into the US.
A man was arrested for this artistry. Now, this might have been an ideal time Mr. Cocaine Statue Maker to ask yourself, "What Would Jesus Do?" Because I am pretty sure even the the non-believer might think a cocaine Jesus isn't winning any prizes at the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art OR even the most liberal houses of worship but instead, will get you a special invite to the Pokey. Or the Playboy Mansion. Or Charlie Sheen's House. Or Hell (that is if Hell and Charlie Sheen's house are not synonymous.)
However, from a purely aesthetic vantage point, WOW, Mr. Cocaine Statue Maker, you have some skills.
Actually, maybe we can Skype, that might be safer. Or better yet, start an art blog and post the instructions for me.
For all of you celebrating Easter, enjoy every minute. Have a gorgeous weekend.
