But scientific research revealed that its unlikely Jesus looked like that. This look came about when in the renaiscance, when painters started giving Jesus a recognisable look.

Looked like what? The shroud? Or the face in the door? (My door)

Hey Hau!

There was a "Jesus in a door" article in the news lately. Apparently, you're not the only one to have a Jesus door!

Here's a light post I stumbled into (note the chipped corner).
This is one of many on Shelter Island in San Diego. Does that count as a weird place?

I suppose the face aspect might have been deliberate. Then again it very well might be another example of an innocent design possessed by and leaking Tiki into our dimensionally challenged world.

I find it interesting that it would be considered sacreligious to make a tiki mug using a Shroud of Turin image (generally recognized as a fake these days), but somehow NOT sacreligious to take sacred images of Polynesians and make mugs out of them....cultural imperialism is very much alive today. Having said that, LONG LIVE poltical incorrectness!

Well said, Kaiwaza! I never thought about it that way. Take that you hippocrites who thought my shroud of turnin tiki mug would be sacreligious! I guess some people think that some gods are to be held in higher esteem than other's.

The "T" in the Trader Joes logo makes me see a tiki, but I'm pretty sure that's intentional, which kind of makes it cooler!
(I have not figured out how to post images, otherwise I'd show ya!)
sorry...
