I find it aesthetically pleasing, but I don't like what it represents.

The semi-circle under Mary. It's more like the manager?

I think it's all right.  So I've foregone actually obtaining it, and I've focused on the space where it would be if I bought it.

The worst of Modernism. Completely sucked dry of any soul, joy or meaning. I'm a Pagan through and through but I like actual emotion, meaning and connection in whatever religious art, architecture, or scenery I'm looking at, regardless of religion.

Very clever. I'm not remotely religious, but I think it captures the symbols rather well.

2022-12-06 10:38:42 PM  
Oh how nice that the glass is hand cut by a Las Vegas artist.  Well done with those basic shapes and straight routed POS stained boards.  You are truly the next Michelangelo.

Mary was sick of the baby's shiat immediately and had no problem dumping him in a filthy manger for a nap. Jesus' family was pretty much trailer trash.

When you wander out past Fremont Street south on Main Street and get down to Charleston, (about halfway to the Strat) you have arrived at the peak faux-hipster area of Las Vegas.

They try to be hipsters, but it's still Las Vegas.  And no amount of lipstick can make that part of town look pretty.

Another area where they are trying to have hipsters is on Fremont Street, past Las Vegas Blvd in the Container Park area.

When I'm in that vicinity, I'm on my way to the El Cortez where the degenerates congregate and it smells like cigarettes and desperation.

I'd live in Vegas if it wasn't so deathly hot 14 months out of the year...

I break stained glass into pieces and solder it into homely stuff for a hobby.
Glass likes to break in wavy lines, not in straight or curved edges. You can expect to break and clip away half the piece you started with just to get the rough piece. Then you nip away some little bits and grind away the rest.
Glass does not like to grind into precisely the size and shape you want, so you end up spending 45 minutes on a piece that doesn't meet quality control and gets tossed into the scrap bin. Then you hope you still have enough glass  in that color for the second attempt.
Mad respect for the person who made this set.
Unless they made this with computer-guided machinery. Then they can grab onto the rails with their unscarred hands and ride the escalator to hell.

For $170 a pop you'd think they could afford a hand model with clean nails...

Karen and Joseph traveled to Bethlehem to see the manager.

So, you need soul, joy, and meaning spoon-fed to you. Good to know. At least they're not showing Jesus as a little white baby.

A Brutalist cathedral is still a cathedral, and it's possible to find soul and joy inside.

Let the spirit wash over you.

time to take a course at the local community college. stained glass is very expensive and it's worth learning methods.

These philistines think Christmas is packed up and put away by the 27th when it goes from the 25th to the 6th.

So much more time to celebrate.

I've seen the mantis and big rig jig in person on the Playa and at the end of Fremont.

$2 of scrap wood and glass being sold to suckers for $170. Kinda wish I'd thought of it.

I actually miss being in Vegas at Christmas and seeing all the casino nativities. Their existence is just the most goddamn perfect symbol of the unholy marriage of capitalism and religion that is America.
