Crucified In A Winter Wonderla by extension13 Crucified In A Winter Wonderla by extension13
A Christmas piece for the cynics.

I usually don't explain my art, but in this case I will since I have received some questions about it.

Yes, Jesus was crucified on Easter and born on Christmas. It is important to think about why I switched the two.

This piece is commenting on how Christmas is no longer about the birth of Jesus Christ, but instead, is all about presents, Santa, and pretty lights. Christmas Killed Jesus. :) (Smile)

When Jesus was crucified, they placed a thorn crown on his head to mock him. That mockery is being echoed in this piece with the festive lights.

Nice job. The symbolism makes one think. I started to read the description/explanation you gave, but a different meaning was floating in my head. Christmas is when Christ was born, but it is sometimes hard to separate his being gifted to the world and what he was sent for, to die on a tree. So when we celebrate Christmas we may also be celebrating Easter in a way.

At first, I thought: "What a disgrace!!!!"

But this is what I thought after reading your explination: " Wow...That is so true..."
