|"Head of Christ" by Richard Hook The original Hot4Jesus inspiration.|
True, I collect Jesus art. Above is the Jesus head that started it all. I couldn't help but slap that caption on my handsome thrift store find - and the rest is herstory.
Let me make myself perfectly clear: IT WASN'T ME who sawed off Jesus' head for my growing collection.
This is NOT the type of head I'm accustomed to taking from Wisconsin!
Besides, from what I can tell of the story, the head that was stolen may have been a Baby Jesus head. Believe it or not, I don't like them THAT young. I don't have a single Baby Jesus in my collection - and would like to keep it that way for awhile.
read it and weep:
Head stolen from Jesus statue in SE Wisconsin church (8/19 Star Tribune).
