What is Wrong With This Picture?

Art is anything you can get away with, Andy Warhol once said.

Here we see a heartless, neutered Christ.  Castrated.  Asexual.  Empty.  Limbless.

The main front doors of the Roman Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri.   

I just wish Italians would stop messing with church doors.  This is frequently the case in Italy (especially since the Holy Year 2000).  Nice, historical, antique church doors are being replaced with modern bronze "bank vault" doors with artistic representations that are off the wall.   


  1. Sexual ambiguity.

  2. What do you expect with the modernist meltdown of Vatican II and with Francis as the Pope?
