Yeah , I know Pussy Riot’s troubles stem from the Eastern Orthodox rather than Roman Catholic, but I stuck figures colored to look like them in there anyway. There’s enough fundamentalism & patriarchy to go around in both. There’s a Chilean mask made from bark that was in this catalog of the Vatican’s art collection. If it weren’t so blurry you could read it saying “Damn Conquistadors”. At group they said “make something scary for Halloween.” But Samhain is sort of bittersweet, not scary. So I made this. I mean, a worldwide organization that covers up for years of pedophilia, while ordering women what to do with their wombs and men what not to do with their buttholes is scary, right?
