French artist gives the Virgin Mary a makeover

Religious symbols are, next to fast-food logos, generally regarded as the most universal symbols we have - which means that poking fun at them opens artists up to a potential world of feedback and backlash.

One such artist is sculptor Soasig Chamaillard, who recently got French blogs buzzing with an exhibition of her Virgin Mary sculptures - which come in astronaut, My Little Pony, and geisha renditions, among others.

    I disagree with your statements Luke.

    Nothing wrong with copy and paste, Reality does it constantly.

    I did read the whole thing, and am in agreement with what I read. Would you like me to post it?

    Third....If that "particular expieriemnet" was not meant to be anything but, then it should not be posted in textbooks, using it as a ploy to substantiate a false teaching.

    Speaking of Hucksters, perhaps you better re read some of those that you are buying into.

      No, you are confusing two experiments. One was on the speciation of moths and the other studied eating habits of birds. If you don't see the difference, you're mind is fractured in ways that will never be repaired. Furthermore, the glued moths for ease of viewing. Photographing moths in the wild produced hard to see and blurred pictures. Dead ones were glued to trees for color contrast so the reader could see the specimen. Nevertheless, gluing a dead moth to a tree does not in any way infringe upon the theory of evolution. It is just simply a photopher taking a picture so someone can see a moth. A good example of this would be having a baseball player pose mid swing instead of attempting to photograph the ballplayer during the game when capture the perfect picture is hard without modern technology.

      And yes, copying and pasting without referencing is bad. In fact, it's a crime called plagiarism. It also shows the arguer does not yield any of his own opinions and ideas.

      You have some huge nads, ya know. You come on here, completely off topic and copy and paste an entire passage about moth speciation thinking no one knows about evolution and science. You didn't even write a single word of that passage – I even found where you got it from (the google machine is powerful). Then you come back and say copying and pasting is ok by demonstrating that another person does it to? Wow, you are dumb. Seriously dumb. I've seen some real dumb crap before, but that argument is tops. If I could give you an award, I would. Your IQ must be in the Forrest Gump range.

      Evolution is a current, on-going event...it is still happening and will continue happening. Creation was a one-time event....like the Big Bang Theory. Something got the evolution ball rolling with that event, I personally believe God. The two theories can co-exist. Both of you are yammering about some things that are well above your, mine and everyones current undertanding. Just have a little courtesy and respect for each other is all.

      March 16, 2011 at 12:20 pm |
    • Luke

      The big bang was not a onetime event. It explains the current inflation of the universe. The big bang breaks down at what is known as the singularity. Other theories have arisen including M-theory.
      Surely you see the flaw in your logic. Because the big bang breaks down, you insert the entire Christian teaching in its place? Allow that thought to detonate in your head. There are hundreds of competing god theories that you could insert in the place of the singularity. Did you pick the correct one? And to answer your question as to "what got it going" you are going to have to do some heavy reading. I suggest Hawking.

      Check out more before drawing conclusions!

      The Peppered Moth Story
      The National Academy’s Guidebook ignores the standard textbook example of evolution by natural selection, the peppered moths of the English midland forests. This moth population was predominantly light-colored in the early nineteenth century, and then became predominantly dark during the late nineteenth century. According to the textbook story, the moths rest during the day on tree trunks and are eaten there by birds. While the tree trunks were light-colored, the light moths were better camouflaged, but the dark moths had the advantage after the trunks became dark due to the effects of industrial pollution. The light moths made a comeback after the advent of air pollution control laws in the 1950s.

      Even taken at face value, the moth story (like the finch-beak story) involves no innovation or directional change. Discoveries in the 1980s showed, moreover, that the moths do not normally rest on tree trunks. All textbook photographs of peppered moths on tree trunks were produced either by manually positioning live moths (which are torpid during the day) or by gluing dead moths to tree trunks. The textbook story is now thoroughly discredited, and its continued use shows how desperate Darwinists are to provide confirmation for their cherished theory. See Coyne, “Not Black and White,” Nature, vol. 396, pp. 35–36 (1998).

      Dear Creationist,

      It's good to see you know how to copy and paste out of conspiracy theorist webpages without actually 1) understanding what you've just read, 2) read the proper and full research, 3) understood that research and 4) not take the bait of every huckster that crosses your path.

      The story of the peppered moth and the conspiracy theory of gluing moths to trees was part of another experiement on the speciation of birds. While an experiment did involve the gluing of dead moths to trees, this practice was just one of many different ways used to study different individual elements of an overall hypothesis. This particular experiment was not meant to exactly reproduce natural conditions, but instead was used to assess how the numbers of moths available (their density) affected the foraging practices of birds. *Bruce Grant (December 13, 2000). "

      You fail.

    • Doc Vestibule

      @Creationist
      The great proponent of Creationism (and more specifically irreducible complexity) was thoroughly and publically discredited in the Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District trial.
      Professor Behe was questioned concerning his 1996 claim that science would never find an evolutionary explanation for the immune system. He was presented with fiftyeight peer-reviewed publications, nine books, and several immunology textbook chapters about the evolution of the immune system; however, he simply insisted that this was still not sufficient evidence of evolution, and that it was not "good enough."

      The leading rabble rousers in the Creationist world – The Center for Science and Culture (sponsored by the Discovery Inst.itute) openly admit that their goal isn't to teach what they think is fact. An internal doc.ument leaked in 1999 described the Discovery group's objective in pushing for creationism to be taught in schools as "to defeat scientific materialism and its destructive moral, cultural and political legacies". They want to use Intelligent Design as a "wedge" to separate science from its allegiance to "atheistic naturalism".
      In other words, they fear that teaching FACTS to children will drive them away from religion.

    • WhyIs This

      Steve

      First since there are only a few posts to look back at you will notice that my 1st post was a poke at the ones who would take offence at the subject matter of the article. If reading about alternate Mary depictions got you in a tizzy then I'm laughing at the absurdity of that misdirected ire. Personally I'd like to have a Wonder Woman Mary figure.
      But my 2nd post was to address RBarringtons attack on us. He drew first blood and I reserve the right to confront unsupported claims with unsupported ridicule.
      Also save your prayers. Send money or some other REAL asistance to those in need. I don't require your help. In fact you have my pity.

      Steve, I am assuming your post was in response to mine. Let me assure you, I am not in any "tizzy".
      I believe in live and let live. I never said anything about praying for anyone, but rest in the fact that I wouldn't dare pray for you, if thats your desire,lol, and the ssumption on your part,, that I do pray
      . Another fact is, I did not address anyone but the specific people I out in my post, noting the attack/counter attack issue.
      Thus, you are not there.

      So, that being said, you can save your pity as well, for those you think may need it,

      Lets not forget a couple things.

      Just because you don't believe, ( and I am gone to make an assumption here, because there is no "facts" to support a God), is your right, That does not mean, you are "right". Trying to believe in something that requires "faith", which you refuse to have, for whatever reason, shows right up front, it would be an impossible thing. Therefore, how can you ask for "proof" of things not seen? That is what ""faith" is.

      Second, you have scientific "proof" for some things, but you still don't know what caused that Big Bang, now do you?
      You still don't know for sure, what caused the disappearence of dinosaurs, do you> They theories about this, still have not been proven. Any time missing knowledge is absent, the door is still open to "why" or "how".

      You , and some others, may call people who do have "faith" delusional, but that statement cannot be supported, because you lack what is necessary (by choice), to know.
      If you went to a movie thats in 3D, and refused to where the glasses to promote the viewing in that capacity, you would not see the movie, in 3D, but using your normal vision would make it a blur, distorting the images. Why? You refuse whats necessary to "see" it in that capacity.

      As far as logic is concerned, I find it ironic, if not funny, that some will call others (believers) "delusional" , but yet for me, believeing that everything came from nothing and created perfect unity, is "delusional". Not to mention how birds know to migrate south when winter is coming, how thier eyes have a third eyelid-a transparent layer that blinks and cleans-without their having to close their outer eyelids. This lid sweeps sideways across the eyeball, starting from the side nearest the beak. For birds that dive underwater, it also acts as goggles, protecting the eye from harm. In a sense, birds have been equipped with goggles and aviator glasses from birth.

      Homing – Little is known about how birds navigate. Experiments show that most migratory birds have a built-in sense of direction and know innately which direction they need to travel. First year Starlings in Europe kept in a covered cage and away from birds which have already migrated once or more, still move to the correct side of the cage when the time comes for them to migrate.

      Noting these facts about birds, how do you think this happened from "nothing"? How do these birds know how to move to the correct side of the cage? Instinct, tuition, (faith >absence of things not seen)?

      Saying there is no devine creation is delusional.

      A box that came together from all the an "explosion" that happened when all the nails, and wood were present to create it, by chance, does not explain how the box has electricity, to light it, pipes present to transport water thruout it, nor that it was all positioned in just the right places to make it a "functional" box,lol.

      WhyIs This,

      The answer is: We don't know... yet. Your idea of just saying "goddidit" is dismissive and shuts the door to possible real answers. But you don't stop there - you give this god properties and attributes for which there is no proof - human-like characteristics such as, love, jealousy, anger, the power to grant wishes and favors and to bestow eternal life.

      We don't know. Your fantasy is out of control.

    God gave these commands 5000 years ago .
    (Exo 20:1) And God spoke all these words, saying,
    (Exo 20:2) "I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.
    (Exo 20:3) "You shall have no other gods before me.
    (Exo 20:4) "You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
    (Exo 20:5) You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the LORD your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me,
    (Exo 20:6) but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.

    (Isa 44:9) All who fashion idols are nothing, and the things they delight in do not profit. Their witnesses neither see nor know, that they may be put to shame.
    (Isa 44:10) Who fashions a god or casts an idol that is profitable for nothing?
    (Isa 44:11) Behold, all his companions shall be put to shame, and the craftsmen are only human. Let them all assemble, let them stand forth. They shall be terrified; they shall be put to shame together.
    (Isa 44:12) The ironsmith takes a cutting tool and works it over the coals. He fashions it with hammers and works it with his strong arm. He becomes hungry, and his strength fails; he drinks no water and is faint.
    (Isa 44:13) The carpenter stretches a line; he marks it out with a pencil. He shapes it with planes and marks it with a compass. He shapes it into the figure of a man, with the beauty of a man, to dwell in a house.
    (Isa 44:14) He cuts down cedars, or he chooses a cypress tree or an oak and lets it grow strong among the trees of the forest. He plants a cedar and the rain nourishes it.
    (Isa 44:15) Then it becomes fuel for a man. He takes a part of it and warms himself; he kindles a fire and bakes bread. Also he makes a god and worships it; he makes it an idol and falls down before it.
    (Isa 44:16) Half of it he burns in the fire. Over the half he eats meat; he roasts it and is satisfied. Also he warms himself and says, "Aha, I am warm, I have seen the fire!"
    (Isa 44:17) And the rest of it he makes into a god, his idol, and falls down to it and worships it. He prays to it and says, "Deliver me, for you are my god!"
    (Isa 44:18) They know not, nor do they discern, for he has shut their eyes, so that they cannot see, and their hearts, so that they cannot understand.
    (Isa 44:19) No one considers, nor is there knowledge or discernment to say, "Half of it I burned in the fire; I also baked bread on its coals; I roasted meat and have eaten. And shall I make the rest of it an abomination? Shall I fall down before a block of wood?"

    (Isa 44:20) He feeds on ashes; a deluded heart has led him astray, and he cannot deliver himself or say, "Is there not a lie in my right hand?"

      Eagle,
      What's the point of quoting all this scripture? I realize that it has meaning to you and perhaps others, but to many and for myself, it means nothing. I don't believe in the bible as being authoritative on anything. You'd get better results in quoting a telephone directory.

    There are daily, normal miracles of life people take for granted. Watch an Ultrasound. or a rose bud. Faith gives some folks the same comfort others get while doing drugs. You people have a right to doubt. We have a right to our faith. One school of thought does not make a person 'smarter, better or more likable' than another. You folks that argue about science and such then undermine your arguments with the name calling. Sad. And counter productive to your efforts.

      Hey @Steve – The only ones that would feel attacked by Barrington’s post are those with a “materialsist, secular agenda”. Care to share exactly what that is since that seems like you have one? It obviously hit your nerve.
      The statues don’t get me in a tizzy, but I do not understand why ridicule and disrespect are considered art. It is easy to be mean and requires very little thought. There are a lot of artists on these boards then…just bad ones with no real creativity in them. At least have a social commentary with such art, but just being mean is more a negative commentary on that person’s self-absorbed interests.

    Again the problem is in the history. Did this simple preacher man, an illiterate rabbi at best, establish a church? No, based on the lack of historical proof e.g. "Thou art Peter" (Matt 16: 18-19) passage only appears in one gospel." Matthew, whomever he was, was therefore a part founder/"necessary accessory" of the Catholic Church, as was Mark, Luke, John, Paul, James (his brother), Mary Magdelene, Mary, Joseph and another father if you believe the mamzer stories, the Apostles and Pilate. It was a team effort with Pilate being the strangest "necessary accessory".

      If Jesus were actually humble, then who started the story that he was the son of God? Not him, according to the synoptic gospels, right? Even Paul never thought that Jesus was God, just that he was God's Messiah, which originally meant quite a different thing than what the word 'Christ' does now.

    The materialsist, secular agenda is dead. It is collapsing in front of our eyes. It cannot answer any needs of the human soul – only God can. But that doesn't mean it adherents will admit it – they do not beleive, and do not want to believe – many harden their hearts against the truth. The reality is they do so, generally – not always – becasue they are involved in lifestyles of sin which they are too attached to to give up, even for God. So they attack everything good and holy rather than reform themselves. That is why we pray for them.

      A drunk homeless man outside my apartment building peed on a cardboard and left a urine stain that looks like Jesus Christ, please let the Vatican know so it can be declared as a miracle. Miracles are everywhere you just need go know where to look. Also anybody who wants a miracle picture of Jesus It's goes to the highest bidder, it will be framed.

    The geisha rendition looked very nice but the thought of the my little pony made me chuckle. Over all, I wouldn't mind see them all. I was disappointed that the article only had this one. I'll have to look them up.

      The my little pony and hello kitty Mary's made me chuckle...very different. The others were interesting and some very beautiful.

      I agree with Ron. This piece was quite lovely and I would be pleased to see others.

      Why is "Anything that gets people to pray more to God is a good things."??? Mary wasn't a virgin. she lied to Joseph to cover her infidelity. God is not great. god is NOT.

      Bill, if you stayed off reading those rag propaganda sites to come up with an answer that isn't your own, you'd know the Truth about Life, why we are here, and the hereafter. It's never to late to save your soul and be spiritually alive while housed in human form living this life, as well as spending eternity with Jesus.

      Amen.

      Coming from a person who shamelessly copies and pastes from websites with stock answers to difficult questions. Moron.
