Jesus Christ on a Unicorn (Limited Edition!)

I must have these plates. What better location to put my dinner babies?

The creator of the Lysergic Christ® commemorative plates, Shane Swank, promotes them this way:

These initial four designs would have looked right at home on your Grandmother’s kitchen walls, that is if your Grandmother was a psychedelic warrior. These are designed for both the twisted Christians or the Godless Pagans in mind.

I’m not sure if I want them more because I’m a Godless heathen or because my grandmother was, indeed, a psychedelic warrior.

In any case, let’s take a look at a couple of them.

First, a freaky looking, bi-directional Jesus:

And the crown jewel of them all, Jesus Christ on a Unicorn:

Only $30 each!

Just think of the Flying Spaghetti Monster dinner parties you could throw!

    I kinda love the unicorn one.

  • Angie

    Devout Catholic chic meets Alex Grey!

  • David D.G.

    I like the concept of the unicorn one, since it basically admits that Christ is as mythical a figure as the unicorn — probably not the interpretation that the artist intended, but that’s how I see it.

    I really want the unicorn one just so I can use it when guests come over, and just put it out there completely seriously and pretend not to notice when people start figuring out what the image is. I’m betting they’d be too polite to say anything. Ah, people…

  • Sara F.

    David– really? I thought that was exactly what the artist intended.

    Shouldn’t Jesus be pictured sitting on his ass? ;)

    “And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written,”
    (John 12:14)

    As you consume your Pastafarian sacraments, Jesus peeks out at you from under the sauce-covered plate!

  • Valdyr

    “And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written,”
    (John 12:14)

    Clearly, Catholic methodology was still being worked out at that point–modern priests understand that you’re supposed to try to coax the young ass to sit on you.

    Jesus on a Unicorn! Wow, here – at last – is proof that Jesus never hooked up with Mary Magdalene!

    Am I the only one who first thought Christ’s foot was the unicorn’s dong?

    Wow. I have to have those unicorn riding jesus plates. They are AMAZING! This might make me switch sides to christianity!

    Ha! No, I guess not. But hey, it makes me laugh heartily! LOL! :D

  • Tom Dirty

    Shane Swank is a genius.

  • Kevin Charleston

    Unicorn not pink enough.

    Or invisible enough.

  • eL_sTiKo

    Oh, they have a (ludicrous) explanation for this.

  • eL_sTiKo

    whoops! Proxy killed my
    link.

  • Epistaxis

    “Jesus Christ on a unicorn!”

    That’s totally my new expletive phrase.

  • http://theipu.com Ron Gold

    You’re right Kevin–it’s way to visible and pink.

    First off, Thank you Elsa and Hemant Mehta for this post, I am flattered that you chose to post this article out of all the interwebs has to offer. Also thanks to all of you whom have commented.

    I just wanted to make one clarification as far as pricing is concerned. These plates are NOT 30 dollars for the set but rather 30 dollars EACH. These are a small run and I could not afford to sell these for 30 a set, they cost more than that to produce.

    Again, Thank you.

    Shane — I’ve made the change in article! Thanks :)

    It took me a while to figure out what was wrong with the photo of jesus and the unicorn but I finally figured it out: View retouched photo

  • Xandyland

    I am not an atheist or a religious person. But now I know atheists like Pink. Lots and Lots of Pink.
    Note to self.
    and, yes, Shane’s a genius.

  • Panda Rosa

    Hey, Shakespeare himself wrote, “Now I will believe there are unicorns,” and he also had a hand in writing the King James Version of the Bible. Whatever your beliefs, who can argue with the language therein?
    If William Shakespeare’s good enough for Jesus Christ, he’s good enough for me! :)
    Kitschy, but this Christian needs to laugh at herself.
