What’s frightening is the enraptured poses of the children.
If you look at pictures of Christ blessing a group you will see the two extended fingers together.
Beware of false prophets.
This is blasphemous.
It is made just for ridiculing real religious monuments.
I understand your point. I said that to make clear my half-joke.
It was entirely intended to be blasphemous, a poke in God’s eye.
God will not be mocked.
From wiki on Horace Greenough's George Washington commission:
Horatio Greenough based Enthroned Washington on Phidias' great statue of Zeus Olympios which was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World (and which was destroyed in late Antiquity).
The statue depicted above is a recreation.
Greenough's work was completed in 1840, Eliphas Lévi's depiction appeared later, in 1850. It's most likely that both used the same iconographic treatment for their subject.
Gruess vom Krampus!
why no black children?
Shouldn’t the children be depicted like the one they look up to? shouldn’t they have elongated flat noses?
And now you’ll hear it everywhere!
This has nothing to do with Elizabeth Warren?
Putting the children in was a calculated jab at the rest of the world to inflame them and get attention.
Best to ignore them
Ditto the pickups and chains idea. Grafitti is also an option.
I can see an obama mask on the statue. Or eyeglasses. Maybe a Hitler moustache or a broken-off index finger on the raised hand. How about a clown wig? Anything to point up how utterly childish this is.
I didn’t mean to imply the Washington statue was supposed to be Baphomet. I was noting the occultic pose was the same.
Also, Zeus isn’t as offensive to our eyes, but he’s no less a false god than Baphomet. The God of the Bible is a jealous God. I don’t think he laughs at the pagan statues decorating our capitol buildings and court houses.
The signifigance of the arms on the statue:
“As above, so below.”
As I said in my last comment, I didn’t mean to imply the Washington statue was some sort of representation of Baphomet, I was merely nothing their occultic pose. It wasn’t coincidence.
So..... When will the angry Christian mobs violently riot to protest this affront?
It has been said that in R’lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming.
