"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Canned Pope

Berlin, Germany-based artist Miriam Jonas sculpts detailed portraits of popes out of Play-Doh in fish tin cans.

How cool is that?  They remind me of South American relicarios.

Some consumers do not know that what they throw away can be turned into art by third world type people.  Haitians and other poor people often make decorative objects out of tin cans and scrap metal.  Some Latinos make retablo and relicarios out of such recyclables.

Song for this post here.
