curious...

As always, too busy to blog, so I'm just posting this odd image -- a Bolshevik propaganda poster from 1920 showing Trotsky as St George, slaying the dragon of counter-revolution (note the capitalist top hat). Below, a Russian Icon of St George from the fourteenth century.

That's pretty cool.

How about Subcomandante Marcos as Buddha?

I know the feeling about being too busy to blog...

Have you ever seen some Chinese Christian iconography? I can't find the link at the moment, but it's interesting how Christian themes are woven into traditional Chinese life.
