A new idea

Today being Holy Saturday (Easter Vigil) as well as the first day of Passover, an idea for a new video drawing piece popped into my head (no pun intended as you will see soon)...

The idea is to create a large drawing of Judith with the head of Holophernes. His head would have an embedded digital component which would rotate images of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and all of the real rulers of Iran, the "I wanna end the world" scary Ayatollahs.

Clearly the idea is driven by the state of the world today, where Israel appears to be in the same precarious situation as when faced with Nebuchadnezzar's general.

Bethulia was saved by Judith; let's hope 21st century reasoning saves us from 5th century mindsets.
