Below is a reaction to the posting of the latest Blue image......
It is, nowadays, commonplace to post something on Facebook. So, I have been posting some of the images.
Indeed, what could be more appropriate than to post an image of The Face on Facebook...?
And I have been surprised at the reaction. Here below is 1,000 Likes. (ok, one of those is mine...)
I'm pleased that the allegorical story (around the subject of whether any image of the Face of Christ can be deemed worthwhile) has now been published online.
Here is a link to Contemplative Light: Christian Mysticism for a 21st Century:
The snip below shows some reactions on Facebook to the green-coloured Face image. So, it seems that the image can be construed either as idolatry or as the shroud image....or both. However, I think the overall debate is interesting. I didn't think that idolatry was bad but thought it was the worshipping of false idols, false idolatry, that was bad.
So, what is False Idolatry? That is also a question for an artist.... to be conscious of the motivations for producing an image.
