Giacomo Serpotta, in another tonality, for the Oratorio de San Dominico, also in Palermo.  Here the sense is weightier in overall tone, if in turn the actual “content” seems lighter – a seeming procession of ladies of high society parading the metaphoric virtues (which one doubts they had themselves).

A belated bust of Serpotta, done with nothing of his skill

  1. JESUS WAS THE MESSIAH, THE CHOSEN ONE.
    JESUS NEEDED ENOUGH OF BELIEVERS TO OVERPOWER
    HIS CRUCIFIXION AND FOR GOD TO INTERVENE.
    JESUS WAS GOD AND A CHOSEN HUMAN AND HAD
    TO TAKE CHANCES LIKE EVERYONE ELSE.
    THEIR IS A WAR ON THE OTHER SIDE A STRUGGLE
    BETWEEN GOD AND SATAN. GOD AND SATAN BOTH
    FIGHTING FOR POWER FROM THE PEOPLE.
    THEY BOTH CONTROL BACK AND FORTH
    THE MINDS OF THE PEOPLE.
    THE WORDS THAT JESUS PREACHED CAME DIRECTLY
    FROM GOD AND JESUS HAD BELIEVERS BUT NEEDED
    MORE TO ACCOMPLISH BUT WAS CUT DOWN AT HIS
    PRIME BEFORE FINISHING AND GETTING THE HELP FROM
    GOD. IF JESUS HAD MORE TIME IT WOULD OF SAVED HIS LIFE.
    GOD AND SATAN KNOW THE PASSED AND FUTURE.
    MOSES HAD ENOUGH OF PEOPLE AND GOD BACKED HIM UP.

    GOD CREATED THE WORLD AND NEVER LEFT.
    THE GOOD ON THIS EARTH WOULD NEVER BE IF
    GOD WAS NOT HERE. THE HARDSHIP TO THE
    JEWISH PEOPLE CAME FROM SATAN.
    GOD WANTS PEOPLE TO KNOW HOW IMPORTANT
    JESUS WAS. GOD IS WAITING AND NEEDS THE
    POWER FROM HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE TO PRAY TO
    A VERY IMPORTANT PERSON GOD CREATED
    CALLED JESUS. ALL FAILED FOR THE JEWISH
    PEOPLE SEARCHING.
    GOD CONTROLS ALL AND GOVERNMENT BUSINESSES
    UNLIMITED POWER AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE CAN RECEIVE.
    GOD MAKES AND SATAN BREAKS.
    THE PROPER PRAYERS OF GOD AND JESUS WILL BRING STEADY RAIN ON THE HOLY LAND

    • I don’t really believe in censoring, though when business spam posts I don’t pass it on and let it be printed here. I don’t agree with you at all, and it is a kind of spam in my view, though not one from a business or corporation (though that is mostly what Christianity has been for 1800 years or so, an institutionalized system having very very little to do with the alleged preaching of the perhaps historical person of Jesus). If as you write god does indeed control all government etc. then I can do without him. I don’t know what brought you to my blog pages – maybe a Google search for images of crucifixions or something like that, but I think your SHOUTED post is kind of out of place. I suppose you don’t think so. Of course. Peace.
