Hanging in DC.
Above: Jesus in bondage. Need I say more?
Probably not. But I will, just a little. I took this today at the National Gallery in Washington, D.C. What a fun museum. I never thought I'd say this, but I may like modern art more than the classic stuff. The paintings by Vermeer were outstanding, but the modern East Wing by architect I. M. Pei was astounding. Not so much for the exhibits, though they were good, but for the building, which is an awesome space. I always felt I was in a building of mass enough to weather generations, but there was also a whimsical air of a school kid's geometric doodle.
Jesus, of course, was in the classical West Wing building, hanging out in a secluded corner of the sculpture exhibit.
He says howdy.
