Plasticine Pope Carvings
Miriam Jonas Creates Play Dough Sculptures Within Tin Cans

{SummaryTitle}

Comparing the modernist consumer culture with religious figureheads, Berlin artist Miriam Jonas creates colorful play dough sculptures of popes within industrial fish tin cans.

This unusual containment of play dough pokes fun at the prepackaged concepts and ideas that religion tends to provide in its attempt to try and please the masses. The popes are fictional characters, yet they are easily identifiable as caricatures of these extremely holy people. Fish tin cans, often a symbol of trash, are used in this project as a humorous reference to the religious symbol of the fish associated with Jesus Christ.

Those who have an understanding of the issues of religion as a product that is packaged in order to be consumed by the public, will find the humor in this series of play dough sculptures.
