So ... who is Baby Jesus?
So ... here's the story behind this.
This "little" mural was painted in a Wal Mart in Raleigh, N.C.
If you have seen the story already, then you know who it is.
If you haven't, that thar is an artist's rendition of Angelina Jolie. As the Virgin Mary.
Here is a little excerpt from the Yahoo article on the painting:
So... Shiloh is Baby Jesus? The much anticipated child? So ... does that make Brad ... God? Or is this a way to tell the world that Brad ISN'T the father of Shiloh?
Certainly an interesting and thought-provoking piece of artwork ... which is what art is supposed to do, right? Remember Picasso? Remember Van Gogh? Oh ... all right. I don't think I will lump this artist with the late and greats, but it certainly does provoke some thoughts.
Yet I wonder if it has curtailed the shoplifting at that Wal Mart? Because I know if I was headed out the door with pilfered goods, I would probably drop them as I stood at the entrance, mouth agape, wondering what this world was coming to.
I'm a mom of three peeps ... Queen Bee, The Door Man, and the Chandelier Monkey, and wife to Ace, the Helpful Hardware Man. I created this space to get away from the people known as my inlaws, and because life with three kids and a hubby is all Unexplored Territory.
