Pleased to see us?

Thought we'd pop out to The Baltic art gallery yesterday to see what some upstanding members of the Christian church are getting all aroused about.

Apparently, depicting Jesus with a large whang isn't seen as a compliment.

I must say, it's a prominent sculpture. Though high art of course, shouldn't be defiled with cheap tabloid innuendo.

This blasphemy I shall refrain from.

Jesus didn't really have a penis, did he? Well I never. I thought he was smooth like action man....

I guess you could call it anatomically correct then?

Something tells me it's controversy for the sake of controversy, that the artist doesn't have any real message, but just wants to cry out for attention.

well said murph, something i think is also true for about 90% of modern art

i thought jesus was a JEW! Hahahaha! ;)

jamon said...

Well spotted!

Mind, the artist had all sorts of figurines similarly adorned.

ET it seems, isn't Jewish either.

are we certain that is a depiction of jesus, not just some random bloke in a dress?

If it's entitled 'Jesus Christ with a large cock' then fair enough, otherwise how do we know?
