Vicarious Atonement Picture

This is a slight interpretation of one of the lines from The Mars Volta's song Vicarious Atonement. I despise religion but appreciate the stories as that, much the same way that people appreciate Japanese yokai or Egyptian mythology. No matter how inconsistant and poorly developed the characters. So anyway, you can barely see the cruci-"fiction" of Jesus up on that hill but you'll notice a) he's not on a cross, and b) he's NOT WHITE! That's because contrary to popular American belief, Jesus would NOT have been white...he isn't American as some people over the pond seem to think...haha morons. The secondly, crucifixion would have taken place on a pole rather than a cross, with a nail through the feet and arms nailed together behind the pole.

My interpretation of the song is in my journal, so you could figure it out from there. Not too hard.
