'Burning Man Obama' (VIDEO): Chinese Artist Builds Effigy Of President As Tribute


www.huffingtonpost.com

an artist in Beijing, Liu Bolin, has made a bronze sculpture of Obama, based on a Time magazine image of the president, that he lights on fire for three minutes at a time

"I think it represents more his popularity... I think my piece represents more the fact that Obama's on fire," he said

The Chinese seem pretty strange if you ask me. Many countries around the world are burning pictures of Obama as a sign of hatred, but the Chinese are burning him as a compliment!!

Wonder if theres any hidden meaning or sign here. Im sure the likes of Jordan Maxwell or David Wilcock will have their own depiction of what exactly this is meaning!!!

I think its pretty accurate, not becauseof the fire though, but because of all of the holes in his head.

Two.


Edit-MMM, MMM, MMM.

Which countries are burning Obama's picture out of hatred? As far as I know due to Obama US goodwill has gone up in comparison to before. I know only of Israel calling him anti-semite for asking them to halt settlements so far.

I think the burning effigies is part of the job for a US President!!

The good ol' burning effigy. Something I remember right back to when I was a kid.

I guess he was looking for his 15 minutes of world fame and so he got it, other than that, i see it as a useless waste of kilobytes across the net.

LOL... that's funny I liked the dotty head ;-)

but I'll add a couple of links for those searching for other effigies of Obama.. These are from Nov 2008..

Battle bonfire boyes built effigies of Obama and Palin

He also joined the bonfire in Lewes with Alongside an effigy of Alastair Darling...

Tho they are not really effigies, they are tableaux

"Tableaux (Tableaux Vivants) French For Living Picture"

The tradition of parading tableaux and enemies of bonfire especially those of Pope V probably has its roots in the Auto De Fe which was the ritual of public penance of condemned heretics during the marian persecutions.

The earliest form of this , that I know of is in 1679 when the Pope , Guy Fawkes and others were paraded in picture form on long poles by young armed men.

Tho this year the Sussex bonfire societies tableaux where mostly focused on the greedy piggie banksters.

and burning is more like blowing up in this neck of the woods, and anyway the tableaux with Obama join a whole host of enemies of the bonfire that have been burnt/blown up :-)

I bet he'd have felt left out if we didn't do it..

edit for silly spelling mistakes.

lol thats pretty funny...

perhaps it means his legacy will be burning even after his presidency.

what are your thoughts Sebastian...
Clearly an artifice of bronze guilded in the Hang style popular in the Ming Dynasty, 800 AD to 1200 AD. Surely inspired by Kiman monks who sacrificed woman and children in Obama-Care huts and hospitals all thru their reine. In suberb master hammering, one is taken by Mr. Bolin to the edge of Hell's heated wasteland...Obamanation!
