Obama = Holy Savior

Paper mache sculpture of Obama as Jesus "causing a stir"!

UPDATE ... Austin Mayor likes this statue too, and as it happens has some Obama/Jesus art of his own.

UPDATE #2 ... Yes, obviously the sculpture is satirical. The artist, David Cordero, told AP:
"In a lot of ways it's about caution in assigning all these inflated expectations on one individual, and expecting them to change something that many hands have shaped."
Steve Rhodes will approve...

UPDATE #3 ... Anyone know where this gallery is? I think I'd like to see the giant Obama-as-Jesus sculpture.
