All things can be 'perverted' from their original intention. Much of the perversion is based on the people at the receiving end and how they perceive what is meant.

My step-father was a locally well know artist so my parents got invited to a lot of parties that were out of their economic league. One night I went with them to meet an author who was going to be in attendance (I've never read any of his work but I wanted to talk to him about how he derived his inspirations). I watch as a woman spent 1/2 an hour telling the author what his latest book was all about. And when she finished his response was "I've never thought of it that way. Very interesting."

Another time I was at my poetry society and the girls had one of the older guys read a piece written by an 18 year old guy about how he used fucking women to please himself and didn't care about them. I saw the shocked look as the guy read the piece on the women's faces and wondered why. At the bar afterwards they were all commenting on how they had never heard the poem read that way and how it was so different from when young men read it. Then one of the women said, "I know what the difference is. For the first time we heard an older man read it as if he was looking back on mistakes he had made, wrongs he had done, things he realized he shouldn't have done as he gained wisdom around life. The young men who read the poem don't have that experience or wisdom yet."

Just because something was created with propaganda in mind (even by an evil group) doesn't mean it isn't provocative or even a reflection of reality.

I think we need to be as tolerant as possible because let's face it, to a lot of people, we (this group) would be considered blasphemous and perverted.

And famously the still from the (now lost) 1919 film Ravished Armenia -
widely circulated on the internet as a photo of an actual event
(which the book on which the film was based claimed did take place)
The last 22 minutes of the movie, the part with the crucifixion, still exists, although of a bad quality! Just check Youtube!

What a cruel thing to do to the condemned and the spectators! Stopping the crucification after the first nail!
Either the executioner has a sensitive stomach or he is english. (Since reading Asterix and Obelix I know that english people will drop everything if it is teatime :))

Several manips here that I hadn't seen before
I know I've seen this girl, and it seems like this series, but where does the crown come from? Is it "shopped" in? It looks seamless, so if it is a manip, it's very good. :)
I don't suppose there is a follow-up image, showing what happened after the panel pins went in? :oops::D
Nice preparatory image, despite the fatal arrow. :)
That is a lovely image.

Time for some weird over-sharing captions!
