An unveiling of President Obama adorned in a crown of thorns was supposed to be displayed in NYC, celebrating his 100th day in office. But due to outrage from people it was postponed. Did you ever think that such thing could happen? Read below..
In celebration of President Obama’s 100th day in office, painter Michael D’Antunono planned on unveiling a messianic portrait of ‘The One’ at Union Square Park in New York City.
However, “due to overwhelming public outrage” D’Antunono has since canceled the unveiling of the painting that has the President of the United States appearing much like Jesus Christ on the Cross.
Below is a portion of a press release issued by representatives of the artist:
Painter Michael D’Antuono has cancelled the planned public unveiling of his latest work “The Truth” at NYC’s Union Square Park on President Obama’s 100th day in office due to overwhelming public outrage. The artist’s decision was based in part on thousands of emails and phone calls; online blogs and other public commentary received in the first 48 hours following its release.
The painting which was first made public on Friday depicts President Obama appearing much like Jesus Christ on the Cross; atop his head, a crown of thorns. Behind him, the dark veil being lifted (or lowered) on the Presidential Seal. The photo was the most emailed picture on the web.
The artist insists that the work was intended purely as a political piece. “The religious reference was used metaphorically and not to insult anyone’s religious beliefs. If that is the effect that my art has had on anyone, I am truly sorry,” says D’Antuono.
