    Oooh! Oooh! It is finally time to showcase St. Joseph's famed mural of the Risen Lord, aka "Boner Jesus" locally!

    Oh, if I only had my camera when visiting my sister's parish somewhere in the north of Wisconsin. The crucifix…is…unfortunate. The corpus appears to be either soft sculpture and some approximation thereof, as designed by a third grader.

    I already know who the winner/loser will be – Hrdlicka's decapitated monstrosity in Vienna.

    I'm rooting for the barefoot cool jivin' Jesus statue.

    Ooo–I know what my submission will be. Hehehe.

    Can we submit more than once? I know of two things off the top of my head that could probably be posted.

    sure, thomas. I will post more details later. The contest will probably start mid-summer with the taking of nominations for 2 weeks. that way the voting will coincide with the end of summer semester where I will have some down time to devote to it.

    Does a very expensive baptismal font that looks just like a toilet bowl, complete with running water, sound like something that has a chance? It's in a horrid huge airplane hanger of a worshiptorium and still bears no relationship to the ugly architecture. Oh, this is going to be fun indeed.

    absolutely!
