Icons and Pubs
This rather nice iconic angelic image has been deliberately done as a sign for a pub (public house/tavern) in England. The person who painted it is a devout RC who does a lot of restoration and decorative work for Churches, especially his amazing reproduction of the Sistine Chapel ceiling here.
I find it a rather dissonant concept, having an "almost-icon" used to advertise a pub. Is it just me ? What do you all think ?
