Saturday Statuary - Wheelie Bin Jesus

Spotted on my way home from work last night … a tiny snow person on top of a wheelie bin, wearing a little crown of thorns.
Cute or creepy … you decide.

Cute! Someone got a sense of humour like you!

Getting in early for Easter....? If it is still there at Easter though you are all stuffed.

Mum, in a world as insane as this one you need a good sick sense of humour just to get up in the mornings.

Hee hee, Jules. I'll keep an eye on it. If it melts and then comes back three days later I'll be the first to tell the world.

The result of an Immaculate Conception with Suzy Snowflake.

That's very sweet. I am now sorely tempted to do the same.

dive said...

Hahahahahaha, Speedway. Thank you for making my snow melt with mirth.

Lynn, I really think you should. Make lots of them and arrange them in scenes from Pride and Prejudice.
I want photos!

And then, there's Calvin & Hobbs snowmen.

imagine what might be done with the Easter theme!

I love those Calvin snowmen. Awesome. I tried making one once but they're tricky to get right; mine just looked like it was yawning.

We had snow here a few years back at Easter (it's somewhere in the archives). If it snows this Easter, expect a sick crucifixion snow scene from me.

Some kind of weird Easter paradoxical metaphor.

Ms M said...

Looks like someone created their own "Personal Jesus". It would definitely fit in with the Calvin snowmen (I've always loved those, too).

Petrea Burchard said...

I'm going with "cute," but I don't know if Jesus would agree with me.

dive said...

Definitely weird, Katherine.
Still; if they keep on putting Easter Eggs on sale as soon as Christmas is over (which they do over here) I suppose an Easter snowman was bound to follow.

Er … Not sure whether to thank you< Ms.M as now I have Depeche Mode's "Personal Jesus" stuck in my head. Ew.

Petrea, I've always wondered what Jesus would think if he came back and saw crucifixes all over the place. I know I'd be mad as hell.
