Monkey on a cross


Paul Fryer took a cross and stuck a  monkey on it, well a gorilla.  He then says he didn’t do it to offend people.  He takes the most important symbol used in chrisitianity and sticks a monkey on the stick, and then exhibits it in a church. (OK, a former church, but it still looks like a church)  That’s funny.

He says he did it to highlight the plight of the lowland gorillas – perhaps some missionaries where trying to convert them.

It’s not the first time he’s done art with a religious theme, he put jesus on an electric chair once.  Modern day execution it seems.

Modern art, ya gotta love it.
