WHICH DO YOU PREFER? ANCIENT OR MODERN?
Here's the old........
.....and here's the new!
Yes, the new is a charmer isn't it? A carefully and artfully designed mixture of rags a la Oxfam and perspex offcuts.............conjures up such a wonderful image of our Saviour and the agonies and humiliations he endured on the cross for us. Profound...deep...and UGLY!
This "cross" is destined for the sanctuary of the Cathedral of Acerra - unbelievable. It should be destined for the rubbish tip.
Amazingly, this cathedral in Southern Italy is also host to some great works of art by Giacinto Diana, Fabrizio Santafede and many others.
H/T to Messa in Latino for the story.
