White Crucifixion

Okay, so the symphony is complete and its time to move on, at least for now. Don't guess there is any room for doubt about how I feel about the subject of War. I have decided to start regularly posting art, the main reason being that I love art, but don't know nearly as much about it as I would like to. If you are in the same boat, maybe we can learn something together. Please feel free to comment on the post.

I always find it interesting when someone not coming from a Christian perspective uses a Christian symbol like the crucifixion. Of course, I suppose it could be argued that it's as much a Jewish symbol as a Christian one, and it's certainly appropriate at the centre of a Holocaust scene. I love Chagall. I'm going to trot off and look him up again. I used to know more when I had a Jewish boyfriend, but that was a LONG time ago. Sunrise, sunset... ;)

Thanks MCM. Yes Chagall is peobably my fave ... at least today...

btw I deleted the previous comment because it was one of those auto generated comments like the one C. got on his blog. What is that about?

I believe that's blog-spam. Was it an "anonymous"? You can turn off the "accept anonymous comments" in your profile. (I think that's where it is.)Other than that, I don't know. Probably Blogger has something addressing it in their trouble-shooting section.

I knew that was a Chagall. And why do you like this one?

voixdange said...

I like it for many reasons. one because I have had very close friends who are Jewish. Also I have read nearly every memoir I have ever found written by a holocaust victim, so the subject touches me deeply.

A - my dad's side of the family is Jewish, my great great grandfather was an Orthodox rabbi. My dad proudly wears a Star of David although he is agnostic and chose not to participate in his religion.

Did you get another one, Angevoix?

voixdange said...

No, Olympiada posted twice. But I still haven't figured out how to block them.

And then it's republish or save or somesuch to activate it. Hope that works for you.
