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.
