As Santa Weeps, Jesus Comforts. Glory. O_O
The 10th anniversary of 9/11 was two days ago. The country came together to pay its respects to the lives lost on that fateful day that changed the world as we know it. We’re all cheering New York on for still standing. Whoever did this painting was also tryna #PayAmish. They tried.
What is going on here??? Well what I see is Santa Claus is weeping into white Jesus’ arms as a sad angel from 1920s TV stands in front of a fallen pez dispenser.
I have questions.
What is this painting trying to say to me? Was Santa Claus in one of the World Trade Center towers on 9/11/2001? I really hope not because who’s the stranger bish that’s been delivering all the toys since then? HIDE YO CHIMNEYS, HIDE YO COOKIES! Is this what happened when Santa got to Heaven? Did Jesus meet him at the gate, while Santa wept because he never got a chance to dye his beard black?
Maybe this is saying that the North Pole is remembering 9/11 and Jesus came there for a special visit. And Santa just fell in his arms to lament the state of the world. I don’t damb know.
Did someone vomit on Jesus’ robe? Why’s it upchuck green at the bottom? I’d like to think Heaven has Tide with bleach. MY Jesus’ clothes are always spick and span. And they smell like Awesome, Glory and Lavender. THIS Jesus’ robe is not e’em becoming or Christ-like.
I ain’t e’em gon mention how according to this, Jesus is all torso. And his legs are bout 2 feet long. I’d like to think my Christ has a very proportional body. This one might have a touch of Little Person syndrome.
Also, what is that angel standing in front of? I keep seeing a pez dispenser but I know that can’t possibly be it. Anyone know?
*sigh* I’m so confused. I’m really trying to understand what this piece is supposed to tell me.
Ok. Seriously. I know art is subjective and it’s in the eye of the beholder or the random person who got crayons or watercolor or paint. BUT, folks gon quit tryna be deep in these paintings out here. Just go find an apple and try to recreate it or something.
Oh, and in case one of y’all wants to buy this, you can, for $50. In fact, there’s a whole “Weeping Santa” collection. Apparently, Santa spends his off months *wall-sliding* in the name of life.
So… does anyone have answers for me? I got sooo many questions.
P.S. I really wonder if Tyrese painted this one too.
