How many images of Jesus Christ are in your home?

And for chrissakes, why do you have any at all?

Count any Jesus portrayals in all media including metal, wax, toast, and macramé.

I have none. I have a bible (not going to dignify that with a capital "B") and I keep it upside-down on the bookshelf.

I have a small statue of St. Anthony, does that count for anything?

by Anonymousreply 2May 14, 2024 7:50 PM

Sure, but he ain't Jesus.

"Hot Jesus"? If you call Conchita Wurst hot.

One, a glass crucifix that is really a liquor bottle. A Polish friend gave it to me (he knows about my penchant for gentle blasphemy).

My husband has a huge crucifix in the bedroom and we have a couple of Catholic candles.

A church thrift was selling a large crucifix from the church. I couldn't resist. But then my brother gave me two more (which I gave to my grandson and his friend to "hunt vampires" with). The truth is, as a protestant I am fascinated by the almost coven-like trappings of the Catholic Church. I also brought home a damaged four foot tall St. Anthony, complete with baby Jesus, from the dump and meticulously repaired them (they were very old) because I couldn't believe someone would be that disrespectful. I hesitate to post this but what the hell.

R8 I got carried away and missed the toast part.

What is the material of that St. Anthony? Any pic you would share?

by Anonymousreply 12May 14, 2024 8:17 PM

St. Anthony is plaster and is built around a metal frame, like rebar. The reason he was damaged, I suspect, is because it looks like someone tried to rip Jesus out of the statue's arms. He is identical to the St. Anthony in the old photographs of the annual feast held in the North End of Boston. I'd love to post a pic but I don't know how

I don't know why but this whole thread is reminding me of those home-made "shrines" to the Virgin Mary. You know, those sawn-in-half bathtubs stuck in the ground with a statue? They were often called "Mary in a Clam shell" and the Italian immigrants near me loved these when I was growing up.

Who are you, OP? Florida Evans?

Da motha Mary in da tub behind da chain link fenza. And inside the house was a portrait of Jesus hanging next to a portrait of John F. Kennedy. I spent a lot of time in that neighborhood, when I was younger. perhaps that contributed to me dragging broken saints home as an adult

Did people in the Middle East have blond ringlets and blue eyes?

by Anonymousreply 20May 14, 2024 8:53 PM

Oh, you mean blonde blue-eyed Euro-Jesus?

by Anonymousreply 21May 14, 2024 8:55 PM

r9 A middle Eastern Jesus might actually closely resemble that!

None, but I do have a Bible, Koran, and other religious books. I minored in Religious Studies in college.

I’m not going through my art books to answer this.

Many years ago, in the from window of Love Saves The Day on Second Ave they had a large sculpted Station of the Cross from an old church -- Jesus falling for the second time with a few onlookers, all below a gothic arch.

It was expensive, so I balked. I still regret it

by Anonymousreply 25May 14, 2024 9:50 PM

Yeah, I have a Bible and a Koran and a Torah.

by Anonymousreply 26May 14, 2024 9:50 PM

The Torah is in your Bible.

Thanks for the pic. Your St. Anthony is cute.
