As you will see in probably my next few blog posts I am going to be focusing on religion.  I hope to set aside my own thoughts on the subject and educate myself before forming any definite position.  Religion is such a vast controversial topic I am sure I will always be learning more especially since I hope to tackle as many religions as possible without spending to little time on any of them.  Like these images the wide spread/acknowledgment of religion in general is very interesting.  Could it be said that the concept of religion is universal.?

My previous images are aesthetically beautiful and I found them while trying to look for images related to the environmental crisis.  It made me wonder who should artist speak out about global warming. I found many artist who just took  loads of beautiful images.  Is this enough? Or do people no to see some sort of "fear factor" to help us realize what is on the line.?
