Jesus in bed with the Statue of Liberty

As conceptual art goes, if you want to get attention and for your work to go viral, do something controversial. There is no such thing as bad publicity when it comes to such things. Attention is the thing. So Christ the Redeemer, in bed with the Statute of Liberty, having a post coital cigarette would be the thing

Accept Mr. Bozhko who came up with the art work as a speculative effort for Ukraine International Airlines (which states it never commissioned) seems not to have wanted it out there on the internet. Others state the advert is a fake designed to win a competition at the Altai Fake Festival. However it happened, it is out there and naturally the blog world is alive with different points of view.

It is not up there with The Last Temptation of Christ or even of Mr Garrison and Richard Dawkins getting it on in South Park. The latter one creating an image that has warped my fragile little mind.

Perhaps with the sacrilegious art the least nagging thing is that the Statue of Liberty should be twice the size of Jesus. The image of Jesus crucified is being added to photos, whether on roller coasters or everyday scenes. That is too crude for my tastes. There are other more tasteful ways to do that as I will show in the next blog.
