I don’t want to be disrespectful and make fun of a church’s decor, but I have to share this weird painting from this past weekend.
Ignore the statue. That is a different topic.
I couldn’t figure out if this was a religious painting or not. it was tough to decode the theme. See those crazy animal eyes? It’s like Noah’s Ark was going to be populated with demon-possessed creatures, which would kind of defeat the whole purpose.
But wait – there are the …. angels? Maybe this is a Creation painting and the animals are just super-surprised to be spoken into existence. “Hey, weren’t we nothing a little bit ago?”
But then…… There is the left side of the painting.
What the what? Is that Columbus?!? Is this painting some sort of flash mob???
I will feel badly if this turns out to be some classic and I am an ignorant idiot. It will be like the time Kathryn and I went to the museum in Munich and were snickering at the paintings, then we read the plaques and realized that they were real paintings by the masters. To be fair, we were young and stupid.
