The Greatest Painting Ever Told

I would never knowingly poke fun at anyone’s religion. It’s just not my thing, and I respect the personal belief systems of others and honor their right to follow their faith…so long as it doesn’t involve grabbing a hold of me and holding me underwater until I shake off Satan.

But I do reserve the right to make fun of art. Especially bad art. Art so bad it’s almost good. To whit, the art and link below which, I’m afraid, are just not so terribly good at all. In other words, delightful beyond words. View mere mortals, and tremble!

(Note: the trick to really enjoying this piece requires mousing your arrow over the various faces to read the footnotes.)
