These slightly blasphemous Holy Mary pieces pictured are witty, different and not pretending to be anything they are not.

Implications - Today's curious consumer has trouble believing in some of the far-out propositions of religion, resulting in a generation of atheists who view religion as more of a pop cultural innovation than a faith. Regardless, the use of religion is still taboo, and will provide any company who uses its imagery or referencing with an image of edginess.
