My Islam Art
I think it is nice, no joke!
(I do notice the bridal and the reins...they represent a gordion knot, an impossible tangle, a cultural moebius of violence which is where we are at this stage in our religious and secular, and civilizational impasses! To be freed by a sword? Who's? A Minimalist Gordian knot, as you can see. Yet vexing!)
OR I find it infuriating that I can't draw without fear!!!!
Gotta go with that last!
That's Mohammed with his filthy lucre from a raid where he took slaves, in my pen!
Update: Does anyone notice the gold?
It is a struggling individual on one knee attempting to lareate the islamic beast, uphill. Woe be Western civilization!
One of my favorites, from my favorite, Winston Churchill:
"The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property - either as a child, a wife, or a concubine - must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen: all know how to die but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome."
NASA please help Islam!!!
The problem is they have only a few books, and worship them as much as they loathe civilization.
