You may be asking what in the world is up with this picture.... Well I copied part of an article that describes what it is claimed to be. I personally take this as an act of Blasphemey.... Even though it does not picture God it does interact with something that was a part of his plan. The Virgin Mary gave birth to the one and only perfect Son Jesus Christ who lived on this earth 33 years (sinless) and then was crucified on the Cross of Calvary for everyone's sin. That we can have the eternal gift if we repent and believe and receive. By using Angelina Jolie as a portrait of The Virgin Mary I find that very offensive and a slap in the face to my Saviour.
A North Carolina artist intrigued by the public obsession with celebrity has found herself feeding that obsession with a painting of actress
Angelina Jolie as the Virgin Mary hovering over a Wal-Mart check-out line.
Kate Kretz has painted for 20 years but none of her previous work has garnered the attention given "Blessed Art Thou," showing this weekend at Art Miami, an annual exposition of modern and contemporary art.
