Get Buzzed On Religious Iconography

IMG_1206

At Empire Coffee and Tea in Hoboken I stumbled upon this striking piece of modernist religious art. Behold outstretched arms – positively doll-like! – and the look of spiritual rapture upon this tiny woman’s face. It is a crucifixion allusion, no? Hence the angelic pair of gossamer wings? What a stirring expression of religious faith.

…Unless you find that offensive? In which case, shame on you, foul heretic, for your false idol!
