Holy...whatever. Literally. Making Baby Jesus is inspiring and surprising in it's controversial take on the subject. The combination of techniques used results a really interesting finish and texture, and all in all I find this simply awesome. ~Malach clearly has the mind and skill of an artist.

I'm not saying that God is a rapist. I'm not claiming that God exist. I'm claiming that organized religion rapes your mind.

so Ugonna Leonard.

Are you saying that you understand what this proposedly almighty being that has been around since beginning of time is about?
Because if you do hold the arrogant answer to that question you're able to explain something that many has so far failed at explaining.

.. or I don't understand God in the same way that you do? Because it seems to me that you're wavering around with some deadly sin there...

lol! what if I do understand? does that hurt you in any way? you expressed your opinion by your image so why am I not to rightfully express mine?

that's why there is free will my friend. we use it as we choose to. nothing is true unless you deem it so and everything is permitted as long as you can deal with the consequence of your actions.

I rest my case

I suppose it would feel a bit like that. No matter how devoted you are to you God, suddenly having to carry a child and having no recollection of what happened to create said child, would probably feel as though she was raped. Like her own body was betraying her by housing a child she really didn't want at the time of conception. She could have been put to death, her very life was endangered from the Lord's act, she probably felt betrayed by her very own God, which could have shaken her beliefs. Excellent piece.

This is probably my favorite work from your gallery. The color palette, the contrast, the concept...just how everything was handled just screams, "yes."

I am a little bother by how she's arching her back like that. Having sex in that position must be painful. Hahaha.

Honestly, it looks more like the devil... But that does add a VERY interesting point of view to this *snicker*
I mean, god is portrayed as an old man with a beard, most probably impotent as hell, if not completely infertile. I'm definitely on team 'Jesus-is-the-devils-spawn' ;)

i don't feel like going into detail what i think about religions in general, but i must say you did a good job expressing one of the many things i was wondering about how they might have looked if they really did happen :D

i also followed your advice, and read like a thousand comments, and hey, i had a hell of a good time just as you promised...

Edit:

i also read a lot of the discussions you had with the brighter and more communicative christian's and i must really say that i admire your strength to 'argue' with those guys to this extend. also i cant deny the fact that you know what you're talking about...

so a big thumps up for the picture and all your lectures :)

I don't mind taking a more "fruitful" conversation with christians or other religious people if they don't act as morons.. but for the idiots.. a little bashing is always good ;]
Never really expect to change peoples perspective. Just stir it a little bit.

.. and yeah. It's a fun read.
On the other hand. People don't have to be religious to be idiots.

no religion and stupidity don't go hand in hand, luckily, otherwise this world would have ended a few hundred years ago in my opinion.
but there are always those that loose reason over such things

i always went to avoid discussions over religions, politics or sports
i had to learn that even friends could turn against you when stating an opinion regarding those, there are just to many contradictions and different belief's that may be or may not be right

there remains a question i would like to ask:
while creating this, did you ever waver if you would upload it or not?
Reply
:iconmalach:
Malach Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2011  Professional General Artist
not really.
I most often don't think about how and what with uploading while making something, except if it was intended to provoke.
Wasn't really my initial plan. Started out with a woman hiring me to do something sexy and a little darkside for her bedroom.

Then somewhere along the process I had an argument with some stupid evangelist on some forum.. and around the same time I also had frequent visits
from some mormons (pretty harmless guys, but as brainwashed as evert other missionary you'll find).

I ended up kinda feel like bashing at peoples religious selfrightousness. The whole.. if you don't acknowledge the virgin birth, then you'll fry in hell
or at least won't be let into heaven is just stupid (at least from my point of view). A rape of sanity. If people kept their religion for themselves
I would have wavered.. but when I'm looking around the world it doesn't seem like the case.

People might get offended by this. But trust me.. things like this just strengthens peoples set of beliefs either if they are atheist or christian and those
that are not totally blind (either as a non-objective atheist or christian) needs to questions their values. Everyone does. Blind belief no matter what it is
in is not only stupid. It's dangerous as fuck if to many people don't think.

I know this is an old piece but wow.
Just wow is all I can say.


Artistic wise - The colors are so vibrant and beautiful. They mesh so well, yet they still contradict each other. I feel stoned when I'm looking at this; it's that intense.

Concept wise - I honestly agree with you on some of the points I see you've mentioned in your comments below. Though I am a Christian (lutheran to be exact) I do agree with the way you've portrayed this scene. Though I don't believe the Holy Spirit actually came down and screwed mary while she was sleeping, the emotion shown in this picture describes wheat I think happened. It seems that the bible is full of metaphors and allusions, yet there are also REAL miracles that happened, and sometimes it's hard to tell which is a metaphor and which is a miracle. I defiantly think the virgin Mary is one of those cases.
It seems to me that you displayed, though the intensity and feeling of this picture, what happened. You can't put Mary's pregnancy into words or actions; only feelings. I think you did a marvelous job.


And as for those so-called "Christians" commenting things like "NO U CANT SAY THAT ABOOT JEZUZ. HE IS DA GAWD AND HE IS ALMIGHTEE." well..... let's just say it makes me ashamed to call myself a Christian. The funny thing is that you aren't really dissing Christianty in this picture; you're just depicting what you think happened during Mary's pregnacy. There's nothing wrong with that, and when I first saw this picture and read your description, I wondered what "Christians" could've bashed about it.


All in all, this is a beautiful piece of artwork with an intelligent opinion on a religious story behind it. I applaud you, good sir.
