THRONE ROOM

This stole illustrates the danger of turning litugical vestments into artistic statements. This is actually quite good. Those symbols on either side are wonderful but they took me a while to figure out. Because the colors used initially suggested something quite...unspiritual.

More props to Jen.

I believe it's supposed to be the Chalice and Wafer used in the Lord's Supper.

But yeah, it does look like a couple dudes on the pot. Good idea, bad implementation.

Oh. OH! OK, I originally did *not* see the VERY HUMAN activity that can be interpreted here, as Theophilus points out.

Boy, do I see it now. OUCH. That's an image that will take quite a while to purge from my mind.

I just thought it was weird to have guys dancing in front of the chalice and wafer!

Theophilus,

I see it now but it took me the LONGEST time to figure out. :-)

I got the chalice and wafer, but couldn't figure out what disco dancing (John Travolta's pose in Saturday Night Fever) had to do with it???
