Gaudi's Veronica

“Don’t get hung up about Easter.”

— Leon Russell

Veronica like Mary is simply a vessel. I believe that is the correct term from my catechism. Faceless before her savior.  Simply a womb-shaped amphora into which the power of the almighty father of the savior on a stick (r) is poured. Barely an amphora, really; more like a funnel, something faceless and transient, passed through.  A vessel, an object, the rape of Europa made dainty.

Everything Gaudi touched, from gothic to cubist to just plain fucking insane, he turned into art gold!

Agreed. The Veronica is just plain creepy but there’s no denying his genius.

“Roll Away The Stone” When asked if he would ever finish La Familia Sagrada, Gaudi replied that his client had plenty of time. I believe that is what he said.
