Look! Up in the sky!
There’s a lot going on here. We’ve got flying Jesus with searchlight halo. We’ve got a VERY WEIRD deformed monkey foot thing happening, as if Jesus’s leg was really more of a semi-vestigial hand and arm growing from out His posterior, and I apologize for that image. We have pectorals SO MASSIVE that Jesus is probably going to need to move up to a new size bra when winter fashions come in, though it’s the spring and He has a few months yet.
And we have that fetching smile.
That shy, self-effacing smile, where Jesus nibbles His lower lip coyly, rests His chin on His shoulder, as if to say, “I could be your savior too…if you’d like.”
Which would be pretty awesome, because He can fly. AND He can manage not to lose His towel while doing so. Since He’s using no hands, and I’m not seeing any clasp or belt action, I have to assume that He’s really been training those glutes.
So, I did buy this one. It’s kind of rare for me to take art home, I filled up my art space a LONG time ago, but this Jesus was kind of special. And as far as I can tell, that frame is made of unobtanium. I can’t get a nail in it to save my life. Amazing stuff, slick as butter, denser than a chocolate labrador. I still haven’t figured out how to hang him on the wall. But love will find a way.
Give Him some space. Easter’s always busy, and He has had a hell of a week. He’ll come down eventually. Just play “Flight of the Bumblebees” and wait for him to land. Patience.
